Please any help would be massively appreciated. I normally have around five zits total on my face on an average day but a couple days ago (and yes, it was right at the start of my period), a complete onslaught of zits occurred. They're all tiny and painful, but I'm not kidding, there's over a hundred and they're all bunched together. Most of them are on my cheeks and jaw, some on my chin, and a few on my forehead.
First off, I don't know why this happened. I'm 22 years old and I have never had this happen to me before.
Secondly, how do I make it go away? Right now I'm guessing it's an (atypical) result of my period and hormonal spikes and all that so will it go away on it's own when my period is completed? I have bad reactions to salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide so I can't really use any topical gels or creams. I usually do a manuka honey face mask once a day and that's been working great until now.
My face is just a disaster and I'm desperate for any help or advice, thanks.
