Severe Breakout Appearing In A Few Hours- Allergic Reaction? Help!acne breakout severe pimple pimples
Posted 28 November 2012 - 01:56 AM
This past Sunday I woke up for church and my skin appeared normal. I went about my day as usual, and around 6 I drove two hours from home back to where I attend school (I was off for Thanksgiving.) In the car, I happened to touch my forehead and felt a few pimples in between my eyes. I didn't think much of it, but when i got to school I looked closer. Literally my entire forehead is COVERED in acne that had not been there that morning. It is by far the most severe breakout of acne I've ever had.
I can't think of anything that I encountered on Sunday that would have caused this, but it has yet to improve at all. Is it common for acne to appear that quickly? Any help is greatly appreciated!

In the mean time, I'd stop using your acne facial washes. It could irritate it more

then it might be fungal folliculitis. It usually flares up and goes away on its own, but it can be brought on by using antibiotics or birth control pills. If it's recurring, you can try washing your forehead with nizoral shampoo twice a day. Make sure you let it sit for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. It got rid of mine in less than a week.
If you're going to see your doctor, bring up folliculitis as a possibility- doctors often misdiagnose it for acne or dermatitis. (3 docs missed it for me!)
