Welcome to e health forum.

The lesions described by you are more likely comedones.

The comedones can be uninfected - non-inflammatory acne - or they can become infected and inflamed, leading to papules, pustules, nodules, or cysts.

acne treatment does not work overnight. At-home treatment requires 4-8 weeks to see improvement. Once acne clears, you must continue to treat the skin to prevent breakouts.

In severe cases which may not respond to home treatment, office based treatments including laser, chemical peels, or acne removal may be needed.

Hence it would be recommended that you consult with a dermatologist and seek a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
