Bumps, bumps, go away

brenaeew

61 views

My acne use to be MUCH MORE severe than this! The acne.org regimen helped it A LOT. However, when I started using other products, I started getting random bumps every now and then on my forehead, cheeks and chin area. It doesn't look that bad, but I'm so use to having smooth skin and these stubborn bumps are BEYOND IRRITATING!IMG_5634.jpg.9322cb1c80fcc8c231749d1190defcfa.jpgIMG_5635.jpg.f2e155db382b7357ce15dffcddb7116d.jpgIMG_5636.jpg.e69138fc1bd356b31a99bb2d19b4deab.jpgIMG_5638.jpg.6d2ae5a391b834469ff88ee03e0e267a.jpg

The bumps are possibly caused by a fungus, either malasezzia or candida (or both). Have you taken antibiotics (or birth control pills) ? Do you have dandruff ? Do you have a white tongue ? If you get back to me with answers to these questions I can possibly/probably provide some information to help solve your problem.

No I do not have dandruff or a white tongue. I have taken birth control pills in the past and it broke me out very badly so I stopped taking them.

If you have taken birth control pills, you very possibly have fungal acne. Buy some topical antifungal clotrimazole cream (available without a prescription) and apply that to the affected areas. Get back to me if the clotrimazole cream does not clear up the problem.
