All of us are quite familiar with pimples and acne. No matter how much a perfect skin you are blessed with, there is hardly any chance that you have come to this age without suffering from pimples or acne even for once in your lifetime. Children are actually exempted from this category and in most of the cases these irritating skin condition start to appear during puberty or later. There are people who experience pimples or acne even at an older age.
First let us point to the fact that pimples or acne can be of different types and there can be different reasons behind their occurrence. A single, two or three pimples on your cheek or forehead might not be considered as acne, which is a much severe form of the same. However, the reasons causing the pimples can actually take a turn for the worst in no time, prompting acne breakouts. While a few pimples can be removed from your face within 1-2 days with proper treatment, acne on your cheeks can be actually more stubborn and might need some time before they are actually removed.
