Infection on face
I had a pimple near nose 8 months ago. I even went to a doc and she gave me benzoylperoxide and clindamycin phospate. I used it for 4 mnths bt it didn't help. In the mean time there were small white pimlpes (2 or 3 but very small) on that existing pimple. Now its flat bt still visible. The mark isn't going and it's red
