  1. A little embarrassing, but I have a small red mark on my butt from a pimple I had almost a year ago. It just wont fade! It looks as if there is still a pimple, but if you feel it there is no raised bump whatsoever. I have been using 2.5% benzoyl peroxide and hydrocuartozone. Will anything else help?

I have been on many different types of antibiotics and just about every topical cream out there with no avail. Although my acne is not near as bad as a lot of peoples, it really bothers me. I always considered it a fact of life that I would have to go on accutane eventually, as so many of my relatives h
