Well currently I only have about 4-5 active bumps/pimples on my left cheek and almost no pimples on my right, but I have a lil left over red marks on my cheeks and forehead. I was wondering if low dosages of Vitamin B5 will help clear this? Like about 2grams to the max of 5 grams a day? Or is Pantothenic Acid/Vitamin B5 soley focused on stopping active pimples?

pantothenic acid. Also called vitamin B5, and often touted as being effective for acne. However, there is only one study supporting this notion and it dates from the early 1980s (Source: International Journal of Dermatology, 1981, volume 20, pages 278–285). There is no current research showing this to be an effective treatment for acne, but there is a small amount of research showing that it can be effective for hydration and wound healing (Source: American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, 2002, volume 3, number 6, pages 427–433).
