Why do I get pimples in the same area on my face?

Recommended Posts

A small area on upper part of my cheek is always getting pimples. The area is about the size of a nickel and sometimes I either have a small pimple on there or a cluster of them. Seems like when there's one in that spot, when it starts to go away another one will pop up next to it.

A few years ago, this was the exact spot I got a very large cyst back when I had really bad acne. My face is basically clear now except for that one spot where I continue to get little breakouts.

When there aren't any pimples there, the skin is scarred, probably because it continuously breaks out.

I broke out in 3 zits in this spot last week. When I thought they were healing they merged together and formed a big one! That finally started to heal yesterday, but then this morning 2 more popped up right next to the big healing one!

ARGH! :wall:

you could be sleeping on ur side and putting pressure there ... if thats the case remember to change your pillow case every night, thats what i do anyways, and try sleeping on your back if you really wanna try ur best to keep acne away
