Hello,

I have had this outbreak for over a month now, it was smaller before, went away and now has come back in the last month. I am unsure if it is acne as I have had past problems with it, but never this bad.

It is quite painful to touch, very irritable and itchy and is unresponsive to any treatment I've tried. I have tried what my dermatologist recommended for past acne outbreaks, Aczone + Atralin, but that is not working. I have been using peroxide to try to sterilize and dry it out, also not working.

At this point, I just want it gone and am open to any suggestion as to figuring out what exactly it is as well as how to treat it and 'hopefully' get it to depart.

Are you getting 30 minutes of sun exposure daily?
