An acne on the cheek
I have an acne on the cheek, it does not have any pus. Otherwise my face is acne free. But this acne has been on my face past a week now. It's bothering me a lot now. I have been using niaciamide 10% serum in the morning along with a 1.5% salicylic acid toner and moisturiser. Is it possible to use 0.025% tretin cream in the evening for an hour on the pimple and then wash it. While using salicylic acid 1.5% toner in the morning and at night ? If not at night then should I use niaciamide 10% serum twice a day along with tretin ? I need this pimple to subside. It's a small red bump.

The treatment of acne differs according to the grade of involvement. Some people have more oilyness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks and pores left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.,

Hi. It'd be helpful if you could share a clear picture of the red bump via online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment
