I'm new to this forum but have been lurking the site for years. So, a brief history:
I've had a long history of eczema during my childhood, didn't have any acne during high school, and then started breaking out in these little under-the-skin bumps all over my face when I was about 19. I'm now 23 and have literally tried EVERYTHING under the sun. I've tried: Differin, Doryx, Minocycline, Retin-A, Tazorac, Finacea, Acanya gel, Clindamycin, Ziana, Salicylic Acid, Duac, Atralin, Yaz, Ortho-Tri Cyclen Lo, etc. NOTHING worked for my skin until I took Accutane in June 2011. I only took about 4 months of it due to insurance issues but it cleared me up BEAUTIFULLY. (1st month: 30 mg--rest of the three months: 40 mg)
I had clear skin for a little less than a year until I started breaking out in these under-the-skin bumps again but only on my forehead and temples in May 2012. I somehow and miraculously cleared it up with a combination of ingesting ACV and using mandelic acid. My skin was pretty clear until about three weeks ago. My forehead and temples have ERUPTED in these under-the-skin bumps again. These bumps do not look like acne at all. They are only apparent under harsh lighting and at certain angles. The bumps are very tiny and rarely ever come to a head. They just keep getting worse and I've literally become depressed about this. I do not ever want to go out and all I do is research this online. It's so depressing after having clear skin.
I have attached some photos. PLEASE offer some advice if you know what I am referring to.
