im 14 and i have some acne on my upper arms, chest, legs, back, and shoulders. Its not bad acne, as it seems to never grow into big red painful bumps, but they don't go away either, its just a bunch of little bumps every where and during the day I can literally feel oil on my skin if I take my finger and rub it on my arms, theres this oily feeling to it and i was wondering if birth control would help it cause I'm going to be taking it soon. (ortho tri cyclen) i wanted to get rid of these little zits fast because they really bother me!!
I have acne on my upper arms. A lot of people would say that might be karotosis pilaris but I don't think it is because they're not big, hard bumps on my skin, they're little bumps on there that look like a zit and I've been fighting it for a long time. I use tazorac on my arms to help make it peel but I don't think I should do it very often because its been making my skin completely raw. I have no idea what to do. My dermatoligst gave me this Cera Ve moisturizing stuff to help with it but it doesn't really do anything. I'm a 14 year old girl suffering and I want help so bad! Is it keratosis piloaris? Some of the zits are way bigger than others but its all over my upper arms! Any advice?
