I've had these bumps on my forehead and all over my face for as long as I can remember. My forehead is extremely oily as well. Anyone know what this is/treatments to make them go away?

I think they could be related to your hair follicles. I would try just a very mild cleanser without any medication in it, and moisturize with a non-comedogenic, oil-free moisturizer afterwards. Try that morning and night for a few weeks and see what happens~


Morning:

1) Proactiv+ Cleanser, pat dry

2) CeraVe moisturizer 

3) Proactiv+ Eye brightening serum

 

Night:

1) Proactiv+ Cleanser, pat dry

2) 2 Pumps of Proactiv+ treatment, let dry

3) Somewhat generous scoop of the Proactiv+ Hydrator with the spoon that comes with it

4) Proactiv+ Eye brightening serum

5) Proactiv+ mask as overnight spot treatment

 

Once I have no more bumps on my face, I'll start using the mark fading pads and Acne.org's AHA to try to reduce my hyperpigmentation... And hopefully that will be sooner, rather than later!

Two possibilities from what I can tell in the pictures:

1. A few spots may be sebaceous hyperplasia: http://dermnetnz.org...yperplasia.html

2. Textural issues.

 

Try going to a derm. Since your skin is really oily (your 2nd issue), birth control pills or spiro would help.
