Post-breakout tissue damage. Those annoying pink spots, for example, are “known as post-inflammatory erythema, which is when your acne goes away and you still have a pink area for a few weeks to a few months, much like with a cut or scratch,” says Jennifer T. Haley, M.D., a dermatologist practicing in Scottsdale, AZ, and Park City, UT.
