In Topic: These Bumps Are Driving Me Crazy - Anyone Else Have Experience With Them?

23 January 2015 - 10:35 PM

Hi Kim:)
did you find out what they are? Looks exactly like what happened to me over 2 years ago. Might be perioral dermatitis. Exact same look and place.
good about the antibiotic, I used tetracycline and metro gel. Also, I eliminated all products with sodium lauryl sulfate. Try organic Braggs apple cider vinegar and dilute it 50% with water and use it,like a toner on your skin

I know how frustrating it is, and I know there's not alot on the net in terms of information about it. PM me if your interested, hope all goes good for you:)

Hiiii, I suffered from this about two years ago. Its horrible, and I'm sorry your going thru it too:(
basically mine was because of that cortisone cream too..and when I stopped using it cause I realized it was only making it worse over time, the rash blew up all over my face.

doctor also misdiagnosed mine for "acne" and like you I have had before and I knew it wasn't acne

go buy Braggs organic apple cider (health food store, I think Safeway carries it) it has to be organic with "the mother" in it. Dilute with 50% water and use like a toner in your face. Also drink a tablespoon a day of it. Google it, it will help you.
get the tetracycline, it deffinetely works the best. Also, ask for metro gel. It will also work nice

as for products, use toothpaste without sls, and use shampoo without it. I use aveeno sls free or L'Oreal sls free. I'm not sure how much of an impact it'll have , but I never did risk it

also make sure you are keeping up with face washing. I didn't cause it hurt and I had a bad breakout. I use aveeno foaming cleanser. It works the best

I know it seems bleak but..i did all that and I haven't had a breakout since. I hope you all the best, feel free to pm me if you have any further questions. I found when I had it there wasn't alot of info about it, so let me,know:)
cheers xx

Hey There! Im also on accutane, its my second round! At 40 mg again for probably 6 months. Im on Day 30 today. I also suffer from mild but persistent acné.  My first course was pretty easy and i cleared up for about a year. Then i started getting clogged pores on the fore Head. My derm decided to put me on cause she Saïd some people with oily skin require a second course. My skin after round one Was alot better and about half as oily. So im hoping after This course Ill Be good! Best of Luck to You, yeah There arent many people on hère with mild acné on accutane. I tried everything too but accutanes the only thing That really helped.

Pleaseeeee be careful! I never burnt my skin, but it sounds aggrevated to me. And that's something I did once. I haven't actually touched creams for my face besides aveeno moisterizer since 2012 due to a rash and I took Accutane. You need to let youre skin breathe!

I noticed when I was constantly applying face creams my face was redder and I had rough, oily skin.

Try using much more gentler products. I personally use aveeno foam cleanser as well
