I've had problems with acne since I was 15 years old (am currently 22) but during the last year or so it's been getting alot better. In august last year I moved from Sweden to the United States to study at a college in California. During all of last fall I had very little trouble except from the occasional breakout around my cheekbone and around my mouth (thinking that mostly had to do with shaving). I went back home to Sweden during christmas and stayed home for more than a month and had basica"lly no breakouts at all.
However, as I moved back to the United States in february I started breaking out severly around my temples, not just normal pimples but huge red spots that would be as big as 0.5 - 1mm in diameter (see picture). They're generally really sore and stays for about 3-4 days, after awhile they tend to pop and there's ALOT of yellowish fluid coming out of them. I'm really mind boggeled since the rest of my face now looks really good and I havn't really changed anything during the last year or so. My food habits and exercise is exactly the same as it was during the fall.
Anyone has any idea what could cause it? One idea I have is that I had a haircut the day before I flew back here, I used to have pretty long hair and cut it really short, anything to do with that? My forehead does feel oiler than usual but I don't break out there at all, and if I do it's just the normal small pimple instead of the huge ones I get on my temples. Oh and it's a way bigger problem on my right temple compared to the left one, I've only had one break out on the left side while I get them like once a week on the right side. The problem too is that they come so regularly and are so big that the skin never actually heals, so my whole right temple rooks really redish with scars along with the current "pimple".
Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to cover everything! Any help is appreciated and I'll try upload a better picture tomorrow when it's not dark outside.
