Small pimples on cheeks. Why do they replant after scratching?

i scratch very small white specks from very small pimples on my cheek and if i dont pinch the tiny speck off my skin fast enough it replants itself in a new location and i have to scratch it out of eack new location until i get it off my face. most of the time a small burning sensation will cause me to observe. however i ve learned that using facial cream and a flat edge of some sort helps prevent scratchlng the same white speck out of more than one location

It is common sequel of pimple to recur again before the age of 25 years. It is due to hormonal influence. Our body is sensitive to activity of hormones which causes excess oil secretion. the only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications.
