Acne and scars

I had acne before and it faded away and used to breakout once in a while. For the past one month I've had severe acne. I get big red once on my cheek. And that's the only area I have acne ie the cheekbones. No where else. Also I have these pimples, I believe they are called whiteheads, they look like small pellets. When I prick them these really small pellet or small ball kinda oil stuff comes out. It's extremely disgusting. Please help

Do not prick the acne. Pimples usually start around the age of fifteen years and it will be on and off upto the age of twenty five years. It has to be treated depending on the severity of pimples. If not treated adequately, it will leave behind scars.
Hope you have consulted a dermatologist. Otherwise you can send pictures through practo consult
