How to prevent having a redmark

Recommended Posts

I had a pimple and white stuff in it(whitehead i suppose). Today it came off but it seems like its forming a red mark again. How do you prevent it from a red mark after the pimple is out?

it is called hyperpigmentation

only way to prevent it is to prevent furture acne to form

otherwise you have to wait for the red mark to fade (takes anywhere from weeks to months... rarely years)

AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) can help the red marks to fade more quickly

there are lots of posts about AHA and stuff so do some research

im on my way to clear up my red spots too :D

best way to minimize the severity of a red mark from a pimple is to not touch it, because that will aggravate the infection. just apply your medication and let it heal.

neosporin might also help.
