This is my "bad" cheek. I keep getting pimples in the exact same spots. They resolve and then come back again...so annoying. But, this is GREATLY improved for me. Most of the redness is just acne scarring that is flat. Hard to tell in this photo. None of the active pimples are big and inflamed like they used to be with the exception of one that was cystic but seems to be shrinking.
