Hello doctor,

I am having pus, acne on my cheeks from a long time but I used to squeeze them off and they will not even leave a single scar, but from the past two months, I am having severe pus, acne, and even I do not touch or squeeze them. They leave a scar and the redness has increased a lot. I am using Clindamycin gel at night time but I cannot see the results. Please help.
