Difficult acne at 25
The pustular acne seen in your pictures is clearly not going to go away without treatment. This grade of acne usually requires treatment with the assistance of a dermatologist and could involve prescription medications such as Retin A, oral antibiotics and perhaps Accutane (isotretinoin), which is the only treatment which, in your words, "will get rid of it".
