I have three bumps underneath my right ear and two next to my right ear.

wtf? i've never gotten acne there before.

I don't know if it's from murad, i did have a cupcake today(damit), or maybe an allergic reaction?

ughhh i'm so tempted to just quit murad but i dont know what to use after i stop.

and one day my face will my clear! and the next its madness!

so frustrated right now.

It's not uncommon for new breakouts to occur when you're using new products. 3 pimples would be rather mild for an allergic reaction, are you allergic to anything in cupcakes?

i've heard not so good things about murad, so my guess would be that. i dont think one cupcake today would have caused that. good luck!

It was definitely a reaction due to stress and bingeing on a sweet.

The bumps have reduced and are no longer visible.

I had no idea what an impact stress can do to your skin.

And I'm going to start eating more vitamin A and this is why:

"Given that vitamin A deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in the world and is also a leading cause of death in young children, it's critical for the general public to know that relying solely on carotenoids in plant foods for daily vitamin A needs may lead to any of the following health problems over time:

Skin Lesions Like Acne and Acne Rosacea: Vitamin A is needed to develop and maintain moist and healthy epithelial tissues, including your skin. Many long time vegans find it difficult to understand why they have acne while on a whole food, plant-based diet. Vitamin A deficiency is undoubtedly a common cause of acne for all acne sufferers, but particularly for people who eat mainly a plant-based diet and don't include a reliable source of vitamin A in their diets.

Poor Night Vision: Vitamin A combines with a protein in the back of your eye to enable night vision.

Weak Bones, Weak Teeth, and Poorly Spaced Teeth: Vitamin A is needed for proper growth and maintenance of bones and other soft tissues throughout your body.

A Weak Immune System: Because vitamin A is needed for the development and maintainance of all of your body's barriers to infection like your skin, lungs, and the mucosal linings in your digestive and urinary tracts, a deficiency almost assures you of an immune system that is not as strong as it can be.

Cancer: Since vitamin A is essential to the health of your immune system, a deficiency could increase your risk for developing certain forms of cancer, such as breast, lung, stomach, and cervical cancer.

Anemia and Associated Fatigue: Vitamin A is needed for proper red blood cell formation.

Vitamin A is actually a group of compounds that includes retinol, retinal, and the carotenoids. Retinol and retinal are found in animal foods such as liver, eggs, and butter. Because these forms of vitamin A are ready to be used by your body straight from their food sources, they are often referred to as pre-formed vitamin A."
