Small skin-coloured bumps on my face?

Recommended Posts

I have been taking Tetracycline for about a month and a half now, as per my doctor's orders (I only have mild/moderate acne, and, yes, I know anti-biotics are not good to take for minor acne...but my doctor prescribed it, I was desperate for a fix, so I didn't argue the case/see a different doctor).

Basically, the stuff has worked, I don't get nearly as many red bumps or pimples anymore. Now, however, I have some skin-coloured bumps on my face (chin and cheeks). The are not very noticeable at all, only if there is light shining so as to create shading around them.

Basically, what are these, and how do I get rid of them? I am using a 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Fash Wash twice a day. I also wash my face lightly with a Baby Soap Bar before the do the second wash with the BP. And I am still taking Tetracycline.

SA on top of 100% Tea Tree Oil as a night time spot treatment get rid of those (at least for me in by the morning after. I get like 2 or 3 of those a month (on the side of my face that I sleep on) but I'm ok with if cause they go away fast. Prevent them buy sleep on a clean surface (change pillowcase 2-3 a week) and don't touch your skin throught the day.
