Pimples are due to hormonal changes, pollution, excess sweating on face, application of cosmetics, wash your face 4 times daily twice with face washes and twice with plain water. Do not rub your face to dry instead dap it dry stop applying any creams on face except pimples ointment take Dr. Prescribed tablets depending on severity avoid junk foods avoid milk foods getting pimples in teenage is normal for any person but not taking treatment modifies your face with lot of problems like marks and scars to correct these problems it needs natural ayurvedic treatments and medicines.

Dear lybrate-user, fibroadenoma are breast lump usually occurring in 15-25 years age group. In case the lumps aren't large enough, they should not be removed. An ultrasound of both the breast should be done for better diagnosis of the breasts. I would suggest you to consult a surgeon.
