Pimple Healing



I am middle aged but got a large pimple near my jaw. I didn`t know how to treat it so I put some calamine lotion on it to dry it out. There is now a reddish area where the pimple used to be. It has been there for 3 months. My dermatologist said to give it more time to heal. Will this heal and if not, what should be done?
