[PICS] Help! What kind of acne is this?

I get small skin colored bumps that look like whiteheads on my neck/jawline/cheeks/forehead/corners of mouth... sometimes I get inflamed spots on my cheeks/neck

I don't know whether this is PF or acne! I was on accutane in 2008 and my skin improved dramatically... these seemed to start in 2009 (after accutane)

it looks like it you get them from shaving, that is if you shave. you need something with less irritation and something that lathers well. i found that shaving cream broke me out really bad so i just used my facial cleanser which worked a lot better in regards with the shave and the aftermath of shaving.

i have to shave every single day =[

i use an electric razor, which i clean with alcohol before use, and barely apply pressure

they are so stubborn, they seem to never disappear!

They look like curled up hairs on your neck. My bf gets them all the time. He finally just started plucking them out with tweezers. They usually come back though.

Thing is... I can't see any hair beneath the surface... so plucking is impossible... Sometimes I'll barely be able to see the hair and I'll be able to pick it out with a sterile needle... but that's pretty rare :(
