Dermatologist 's  Response

You are right, the lesions you desribed are pimple.. Called acne vulgaris.

You do not worry, it will be alright after few months treatment.

Oral antibiotics like azithromycine would be helpful.

Local clindamycine gel will improve the lesions.

Avoid stress.

Take proper sleep.

Avoid oil,ghee and they exacerbate the acne.

Cleanse the facewith antiseptic liquid like acmed face wash.

You might improve in few months.

I hope you got my answer.
