Please Help With My Small Hard White Heads/black Heads!

3 posts in this topic

Recently(about 6 months ago) my skin changed from normal to oily with lots of clogged pores/black heads. The bumps are small with hard white/yellow clogged pores and when they pop themselves they push themselves out. Some have dark roots and some swell and become red/painful. My forehead and nose clog the worse then my cheeks and chin. I dont pick but since I am African American skin I still get scars. I dont wear makeup but maybe 2x a month when I am working as a Makeup Artist. I havent changed my diet, detergent, skin care or etc. I dont eat a lot of dairy or sugar. I did find out I had a thyroid nodule about 4 years back but no tests were done. I dont have insurance so getting to a derm or metabolic specialist isnt possible right now. However i did find that mt county hospital does have a MS I can see in 3 weeks for tests.

Here is my regime:

Morning

Wash with CeraVe foaming wash

Tone with witch hazel

Moisturize with Olay complete all day UV moisturizer

Night

Wash with CeraVe foaming wash

Tone with witch hazel

Moisturize with CeraVe moisturizing cream

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

if this has came out of nowhere then (im no doctor) but maybe something changed with your thyroid and its affecting your hormones which are affecting your skins oil production? Were you using different products before six months ago?
