Brief Answer:
Redness doesn't seem to be cyst or haemorrhoids

According to your complaints I don't think the redness is due to haemorrhoid or cyst under the skin.

Any suggestions for over the counter topical?
Answered by Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney 8 hours later
Brief Answer:
Cortisone cream, benzoyl peroxide gel

Detailed Answer:
You can apply cortisone cream on the red areas twice daily for 10-14 days.
This should improve the redness.
On the blackheads you can use benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel twice daily but I am not sure that whether it will be available as over the counter medicine in your country.
