outbreak on cheek that comes and goes

Recommended Posts

In March, an outbreak appeared on my right cheek. It never turned cystic and it went away relatively quickly, but there's been a red mark on the cheek ever since. Occasionally, whiteheads or painful bumps appear on the mark. When they drain, blood comes out and after a day or two a scab appears. This cycle continues for up to a week. Pus, drain, scab, pus, drain, scab. Luckily, the outbreak I had this past weekend healed (knock on wood) very quickly and was painless and didn't cause much stress. What can I do to stop this?
