No quick fixes: If 2 weeks on benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear you, get with your physicain. You may be a rx for a topical retinoic acid derivative (good of many blackheads), the oral contraceptive pill (if you're female), topical clindamycin, a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline, or a dermatology referral for possible isotretinoin.

Get real Rx: Being a young man is hard enough without pimples and even harder if somebody has told you "home remedies / natural" is better. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't done the job, your physician can write for a retinoic acid derivative (great if there's lot of blackheads) &/or topical clindamycin; you're likely eventually to need a systemic antibiotic & if severe, consider accutane. Good luck. ...Read more
Sort of: It is worse to neglect them, and not seek scientific treatment. You're human and you're going to pick at them and probably pop the uncomfortable ones, but severe acne will scar regardless.

Not the key: Whether or not you pop them, you're likely to have hyperpigmentation and maybe depressed scars; the latter can be permanent. You owe it to yourself to get serious about managing your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated up to 10% 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, your physician can add something that will.
