Many options: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or differin (adapalene) gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics, and oral contraceptives (for women), are options also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist may prescribe oral accutane.

Possibly not a "zit": It may be a persistent clogged pore or a small cyst if it has lasted this long and is still raised. It may also be some persistent inflammation. If it's just redness, but it's flat it may be PIH (hyper pigmentation from the acne). You could try a low concentration, over the counter steroid cream on it to see if that helps, if not, see MD.

Hi! How can I treat face pimples?

Scientific Rx: Glad you're seeking treatment. If a few weeks on over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide isn't a great success, your physician may add a topical antibiotic such as clindamycin. If your acne is only on your face, you're less likely to need to move onto a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 mg 2x/day, but perhaps this is in your future. Dermatologists have the big guns.
