Help with acne. (Thanks)

Recommended Posts

Hello I am a 26 year old male. About 2-3 years ago I have been getting some bad acne spots. Nothing too bad. I never had bad acne when I was a teen. But After look around the froum and a few site.. I have some questions. Maybe someone can answer them. I found that my face seem to get alot of oil on it. I found that the rest of my body does not have that much oil on it. Like on my arms..etc There seem to be dry. I read that too much oil on the skin can cause acen. I wanted to know if that is normal that only my face has too much oil. Also the type of acne is not the normal type. It starts off more like a bump under skin. If I leave it alone it may get a "White Head" But most of the time its a bump. I read that a medican can be taken to reduce oil, but Its from Vitamin A. So you think that Vitamin A would be better them medican. Maybe eat more foods with Vitamin A? One last thing. and this is the odd thing about my acne. I found that a few bumps seem to come back at the very same place and its seem to happen every 2-3 weeks. Is that normal? Again it seems that the bump goes away and then comes back. The bumps happen around my frown line. (The line around your face when you smile) I get a big one around the outside of the line on the left side. And sometimes I get a very small over around the same spot of the right.

Again thanks for any help.

If they are hard and painful they are nodule/cysts. They could be reoccurring, but it possibly may be a breakout spot for you. When they come to a head, use Benzoyl peroxide or tea tree oil for spot treating. Make sure you moisturize with a moisturizer. It's important to keep the area nourished.

However when they are under the skin there's not much oyu can do but get a cortisone shot at a dermatologist, which gets rid of them very quickly (like 2-3 days).

No its not hard or painful. Heck If I let warm water run on them While I am in the shower It will get alot smaller. I can't use Benzoyl peroxide or any oil in my skin. The Benzoyl peroxide leaves dark spots on my skin (I am a lite brownskin person) So I get very dark spots. Also any oil seems to make me break out. That why I ask about medican to reduce oil. I have found that I drink ALOT more water now and the acne is not that bad, but I again get a few bumps.

Again thanks for the help.
