Acne in the same spots, over and over again

Does anyone know why some zits keep on coming back in the EXACT same spots as before? I've had some pimples for a few years now that ALWAYS keep on re-appearing in the same areas around my nose. They are also the same kinds, and same size.

Are my oil production pores messed up in those areas more than in others?

honestly it could be a few reasons.

A) u could be touching the areas subconcioiusly without knowing it

b) clothes could be rubbing against it or your pillow

most likely tho, your pores are just clogged as shit in them areas. u need to exfoliate.

paulas choice bha worked for me

Alright. I stopped touching my face or popping them, but they pop themselves... just not fully. Maybe it might be cause they don't FULLY leave me when they pop, and the remaining puss just gets inflamed again...

I'm still not too sure on what to do though.

Popping them vigorously or carelessly may mean the acne gets spread, i.e clogging the pores or spreading dirt with your fingers. As a general rule if a spot does not have a prominent head, don't squeeze it. If there is a head squeeze it gently with tissue paper or something, clean and medicate afterward.

an add on to this. if it does have a prominent yellow/ puss head, then and ONLY then

use a blemish extractor to pop it. (same thing dermatologists use) they get the core out, by isolating just around the tiny blemish. be very careful, never break the prominenet head rule, or u will end up irritating the hell out of it..
