I have had small colorless and painless bumps all over my forehead for about 2 years now. They can only be seen well when up close or when the sunlight catches them. The skin on my forehead also feels extremely rough due the size and consistency of these bumps.
I used to have mild to moderate acne, therefore I believed that this condition was just another way that my acne was coming through, however my skin has been almost 100% clear for the past year, yet these bumps/ texture persists, leading me to believe it is not a form of acne.
I have read online about forms of folliculitis and fungal/ yeast related conditions that seem to be extremely similar to my condition based off of descriptions/ images that I've found. Pityrosporum folliculitis is the condition that I have found is most similar to mine based off my internet research.
I'd like to note that I am in the process of getting an appointment made with a dermatologist, however I am asking here anyways because I have seen many cases of misdiagnosed conditions, particular those related to fungus/ yeast. I'm posting this in hopes that somebody who has first-hand experience with this condition can instantly identify it and maybe even give me some advice in helping to treat it.
In the mean time, I plan to switch brands of shampoo, start exfoliating and improving my diet (I know these things may not help, but they're things that are probably not a bad idea to do regardless)
I have attached several images of the affected area that I hope are of decent enough quality to help somebody identify this condition.
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to help. I know that I am on an acne forum and I explicitly say that I don't believe that it's a form of acne, however I'm not completely sure, and if it isn't, it is very similar and seems to be easily misdiagnosed as acne, therefore I'm hoping that somebody has experience with it. If I'm in the completely wrong place, feel free to point me in the right direction.
