I have so many pimples on my face. The story of pimples goes this way- first the pimple become red then after 1 day it becomes yellow (filled with mucus) and while cleaning my face it comes off and it leaves off a scar and a black mark.A year from so my previous doctor gave me some strong antibiotics like Azithromycin500 mg tab, Aceclofenac +paracetamol tablets and cetrizine hydrochloride and some cream or some lotion (i don't remember) for almost 40 days. But i didn't really get satisfied with them. They also said that the pimples will go away as you will grow up but haven't got any luck. I now live in a hostel so what is the reason? Is it because of my diet? Can these be cured by any medicine. Currently I use a benzoyl peroxide 2.5% soap Acnestar and vicco termuric for moisturization.

You have nodulocystic acne - a severe variant but it usually responds well to proper treatments. A technique called intralesional injection can be applied so that the scars are less for this site. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequelae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. An attempt to find out the root cause of acne should be made in every patient or else it keeps recurring. Each phase takes a couple of weeks before we move to the next phase of treatment. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis.
