Oil filled pimples on face. Scabs, oil leaks out, forms scab again even after applying medicine. Solution?

I keep getting alot of small oil filled pimples all over my face. They are not like normal pimples I ve ever had, they dont really go away on their own and when I set medicine on them or they pop they scab over but take a really long time to go away because every time the scab begins to come off a bunch of oil leaks out and does nt stop till the scab forms again. Its really gross and I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of them. I wash my face 2 times a day and set medicine on them, but they wont go away.

Probably you are having acne.
There are different types of acne & causes are different.
In adolescent or early adult life androgen plays a big role.
So every time it’s not possible to stop it completely.
But it can be checked very well by new medicines & methods.
There are few general rules that you should follow

1. Don’t burst them.
2. Don’t put hand over them
3. Don’t clean face by rubbing after bath or face wash.
Just let it dry by itself or soak water with dry towel.
4. Don’t use medicines/creams/cosmetics over face without supervision of doctor.

You please consult a dermatologist.
It will help.
Good luck.
