Here is my story: I'm 28 years old and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism over a year ago. I have been taking a thyroid hormone replacement prescription (levothyroxine). I always have had dry skin, but never had acne. My skin used to get compliments, and I never needed to wash my face, I only used lotion. When summer started, I noticed my skin becoming oily. My forehead then began to show small bumps. I thought it was just a reaction from my medication until I found this site. From previous advice, I started using dandruff shampoo (head and shoulders) on my forehead and I have seen a great improvement within the past two weeks. I now believe that it is fungal skin infection. Thank you previous commentators for your advice and I hope others will give this a try :)

I think I had this on my face for almost three years! it would itch and burn with bumps all over, it started on the chin and spread all over the rest of my face. I even had bumps behind my ears, the front of my neck and the back as well as my chest. Some bumps looked like whiteheads, others were clear and some were red. Prior to this, I never had any skin issues and my skin was sooo flawless that people would ask me what foundation I am wearing. 


There was a few things I did that I think worked. First I used clotramizole for a couple of weeks, which cleared most of the bumps. I then used sea salt soaks on my face for about a week (boiled water to get rid of bacteria which has been cooled). The sea salt I think helped to get rid of clogged pores which had also been caused because of the oiliness that usually accompanies this infection, it didn't do too much for the bumps caused by the actual fungus. I then used colloidal silver for two weeks, this is what helped with the itchiness and burning type bumps.


I still have bumps on my chest and will try the same method on these but my face seems clear for now but apparently it can come back so fingers crossed.


I just wanted to let you all know that you're better off trying the more natural methods (especially colloidal silver - but be very careful not to use too much or for too long) rather than the topicals because trust me, I tried most of these. Even with the clotramizole, it cleared most of it but then I would still get a few burning/itching bumps.
