Frustrating(From the guy who shouldn't be complaining)

I have been blessed with fairly clear skin. I am 18 and my nose has been the area on my face with the most problems. At least 3 months ago I popped two giant pimples on my nose and now I am left with flat red marks where the pimples used to be. I have seen little to no change in terms of area and redness. Besides these spots, my nose is covered in blackheads that won't do anything when I squeeze em. These days I use St. Ives Apricot Blackhead Scrub and Nivea Men's Gentle Face Wash. I drink moderate amounts of water but I guess I could use more. I have tried Minocycline, Benzaclin, and Proactiv but I didn't really see any results from these. The main concern is the red spots on my nose that won't go away, I want to know what actions I should take to see results or if it is just a matter of time before they fade away.

I know some guys that wear tinted moisturiser in order to cover up acne marks. You can try that but make sure it is oil-free/noncosmedogenic (??) The acne pigmentation marks will fade eventually. I have several that has been with me a year or more but are fading slowly. Best of luck.
