Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Acne is a complaint that often arises in teenagers like you. Usually, this acne is not dangerous, and appears as a result of hormonal fluctuations at puberty alone. If you keep your skin clean, these pimples should slowly disappear within 1 to 2 months.
It is true, you cannot do acne treatment carelessly, including by using any ointment without the supervision of a doctor. Wrong, instead of treating, using an inappropriate ointment can actually make your acne worse and spread to make it more difficult to cure. Not only improper acne treatment, acne can also be exacerbated by an unhealthy diet, poorly maintained skin hygiene, psychological stress, exposure to sunlight and other irritants, lack of sleep, side effects of drugs, or various other diseases.
Better, you first check your complaint to a doctor or a specialist in skin and genitalia. By evaluating your skin condition directly, of course the doctor can recommend you the most suitable acne treatment, whether it can be with special creams, or other medical measures. Also, consult with your doctor for handling acne like what you can do at home so that your complaints don't recur and recur.
Here are steps we can suggest to reduce acne on your cheeks:
Shower diligently morning and evening
Clean your face with a special cleansing soap that contains an anti-acne formula
Dry your face well with a clean towel, not rubbing too much
Use sunscreen so that your skin is not exposed to direct sunlight
Sleep is more disciplined
Stay away from excessive stress
Eat more fruits and vegetables
Avoid smoking or consuming alcohol
Use natural masks, for example those from jicama, papaya, and turmeric to help relieve inflammation in the skin from acne (you should first consult a doctor regarding this, because in sensitive people, improper use of masks can also trigger irritation)
Hope it helps ..
