I am a 17 year old male that has a mild problem with acne. The worst affected parts seem to be off to the side of my eyebrows. I don't know if it's that I touch that part of my face often or what. My question is that I went to bed one night and woke up the next morning with a small purple colored mark on the side of my face. There was nothing there the night before and I hadn't picked at it or anything. I don't know what this could be. It has been about 3 days and doesn't seem to be going away. I was just wondering if this is a normal occurrence? If these little marks go away eventually or do I need to get some skin cream?
Hard to say for sure, but the speed of appearance and intensity of color sound like trauma (rubbing in your sleep) or else a pimple, which can indeed come overnight. The less you do, the better. It may take a couple fo weeks, but it will go away.
