So I had fine skin until this one episode where I tried the glam glow face mask and the murad skin perfecting lotion. I'm not sure which did it but my face broke out in this terrible rash, my eyes were puffy and it lasted a week. I used hydrocortisone to help it down.
After that my skin got worse and worse, (also a factor, I was just in my 20's at this point...) I noticed more pimples on my chest and there were ALOT on my usually clear back. Then I noticed these small bumps in lines on my cheeks. They were skin coloured bumps and some were even itchy. They eventually became pimples (maybe from me messing with them so much) and are still here about 5 months later. My forehead is the same with what started as bumps around my eyebrows and progressed into bumps and pimples all over my forehead. It is now around my chin, it looks like a bunch of tiny clogged pores, I'm seeing blackheads everywhere and clogged pores all around my nose. Nothing on my nose though. My skin feels bumpy like sandpaper and I've tried everything I can do.. not wearing makeup etc. but it seems to get worse every day.
I was thinking it could be folliculitis in which case I should use a zinc soap... otherwise I have no clue! None of the acne creams that have usually worked for me in the past (BP, clindamycin, steivamycin etc) are working which leads me to believe this is something different.
Can anyone give me any advice!? I've seen a derm and he is simply putting me on accutane.
