i am now desperate. I am a 26 yr old male, ive always had somewhat oily/combo skin but never forehead acne. last year i broke out in a series of tiny little bumps all over my forehead, i used the clean and clear 3 step method and after a few weeks it cleared up.
about 7 months ago it flaired up again and the clean and clear method did nothing. Since then i have tried EVERYTHING! i have received multiple facials, using only gentle and natural products, exercising and eating plenty of leafy greens and drinking lots of water.
I have had a smooth forehead before so i feel there has to be something i can do! I do not have health insurance so seing a derm is out of the question for now.
ive run through so many possibilities.
is it :
-regular acne? i dont think so since it doesnt form whiteheads generally, and the bumps are so small.
i know im not supposed to exfoliate, so i dont. i use a gentle alba cleanser, ive done yogurt mask and i use a homemade lavendar and euc, toner.
please, someone shed some light. I feel awful and i hate the way it looks..
thank you. here is a picture for reference.
