Hey guys. My name is Buddy. I am 20 years old. I've suffered from acne for as long as I can remember, leaving scars on my cheeks. The past year or so my skin finally started to mellow out, and breakouts became less and less severe, and not as frequent.
Unfortunately, 4 weeks ago I started a very high dose of antibiotic for an ear infection and soon began to have an allergic reaction and stopped taking it. My forehead began breaking out really bad, which is very rare for me and the breakout hasn't gone away, its actually getting worse.
It looks nothing like an acne I have ever had before. I'm not sure if you can tell by the photo but it looks like maybe 80-90 bumps total, most under the skin.
I use a gentle face wash, oil free, no scrub, for sensitive skin, wash my face for about 10 seconds, lightly with warm water and pat my face dry afterwards. Then I apply a 2.5% benzole peroxide cream, the bottle from 'The Regimen' offered on this site.
Can you please tell me what this is and how to fix it. It's making me extremely embarrased and frustrated that it continues to get worse.
Is this something from the antibiotic? what type of acne is this? should i see a dermatologist?
