Pimples on face, having hard waxy cores, recurring condition. Using gentle cleanser. Treatment?

I have several pimples on my face that have hard waxy cores. Sometimes they squeeze out and other times I pull them out with tweezers. I wash my face regularly with a gentle cleanser. But they keep coming back. I had perfect skin until 7 years ago at age 35 I developed acne . Help what are they and how do I make it better

Hello Dear
Thanks for your query.
Your words suggest you are having Acne vulgaris.
Dont worry too much .... Do not squeeze or scratch the pimples.Keep your skin clean,Have healthy diet & lots of fluids.Avoid too much oily foods.Apply topical Clindamycin gel over the pimples for a month.You can use topical tretinoin over the comedones [ but be careful as sensitive persons develop burning sensation and redness after application]..and if have you are having too much of nodulocystic acne you can use oral Isotretinoin for 4-6 months [but always under supervision of your dermatologist]
Hope this helps you.
Stay in touch with your dermatologist.

Take care :)
