I agree with the above poster, but if you want to speed up the healing process you could get yourself an AHA cream to up your skins exfoliation process. Also if you wanted you could combine the with regular facial peels for extra results!
Hope this helps (:

Yep, Definitely non-inflamed acne. Try the steaming with AHA or BHA exfoliation. OCM is excellent for clearing pores as well. It really takes a long time to get rid of non-inflamed acne though, so plan to stick with it for 3-6 months. Chemical peels can help too. There are some easy ones you can do at home. SkinLaboratory sells a 20% Salicylic acid for less than $20 on Amazon. DO NOT PICK/POP them they will look worse and may scar. Just slowly wear off the top layers of skin and they will clear on their own. It will take several months. you can also try taking Aleve, sometimes this helps to clear out the face.. not sure why but it helps. Just 1-2 per day for about 5 days, every 2 weeks. Apple Cider Vinegar (raw, organic and unfiltered, with "the mother) is awesome for a toner. If it is a dermatitis it will clear in a couple days, if not, then it will help slough off the overlying skin to help the pores clear out. Good Luck!!
