Hello, I keep having persistent acne on my left cheek. It comes out like big swelling, no pus just red and it hurts. Then the small ones come out like rashes that sometime show up on my chin and forehead. I took antibiotics for 6 weeks and it came down and about 2 months after it came out again. I haven't changed my diet, i'm not a foodie. I still use the same cream and soap. What do I do? Or what cld I be doing wrong?

Hello, HerbNwaka. Thank you for posting today.

You might need to go back to your dermatologist for a repeat of the antibiotics if it worsens or trying other things do not help. Take the time to read the below resource. You can copy/paste the link. It has some very good tips and advice about treating stubborn acne. Often times, it's not one treatment that will work, it's a combination of treatments. I struggled with back acne for years. I know how frustrating it can be. Good luck!
