Pimples and white heads
My daughter is suffering from acne. Her acne is associated with puss and blood. She cannot tolerate and squeezes them out. They get worse during her periods and irresistible itch. Hers is more of a dry skin than oily. The old pimples go away and scars remain. Pimples again develop and new scars are coming on top of them. Her skin has become black spots over white. Please suggest what can be done. She stopped squeezing altogether but still scars are formed. Her skin has black and white heads too.
