    Need Help Identifying This (Pic Included)
    Following my accutane treatment about 4 years ago I began developing the condition where I was getting red, itchy bumps on my face. They happen most frequently after I get out of the shower or wash my face. They go away on their own in 1-2 hours and usually leave no trace that they were there. Sometimes they leave a very tiny whitehead.

    They can also randomly appear during the day. I can feel my skin get hot and then itch. It looks like I have a mosquito bite.

    It hasn't really been that bad for the past couple of years but I recently have been taking solodyn for my scalp foliculitis (I also developed that immediately after accutane). This seems to have made it worse.

    Has anyone had experience with this?

    Ok, this little thing surfaced and it wasn't as bad as I thought. maybe i'll try some hydrocort. on it now and see what happens. I've been putting BP on it like 3X/day. I think my accutane has helped it stay small as well. Hydro shouldn't cause some type of reaction with tane, right?

    thanks for the advice. i've heard some things about hydrocortizone cream, will this work? also, are injections covered by insurance. if not, how much will they cost?

    Trying to Chase Away Cyst
    This morning when I was washing my face it looked as if a cyst was developing in the middle of my forehead. Is there anything I can do to prevent it from coming to the surface? I have a job interview in a week and I don't want it there.
