Is This Even Acne?

Recommended Posts


http://gyazo.com/ced04bc33c3e5985f2526caf19001228 might be a better picture

The above pictures areof my chest, and this is what I'm not sure if it's acne or not. The picture showed the "acne" fine on my phone but I it's hard to see on the picture. But what you're looking at are the bumps on my chest/stomach. They are skin color and do not have heads. There is a red bump and that is because I tried to pop on of them. The first time I ever got one of these I tried popping them and it worked, it squeezed out stuff like a black head.

How I think I got them: Last summer and even throughout this year, there were many many days where I went out and when I came back I just went to sleep without taking a shower. I used to barely wash my sheets as well.

This is what I think may be the cause. I have been monthly washing my sheets and scrubbing my chest with my face wash.


Though I don't know how effective it actually works, it seems to be making it a little better after a month of using it.


What you're looking at in this picture are the bumps on my nose. Those used to be pimples, but I guess I popped them incorrectly and now they're just bumps. But this was about a year and a half ago. Not sure what to do with these.

A 'bonus' question, on weekends I stay up really late like til 3-4 in the morning, way different than my normal sleeping schedule and I always wake up with a few tiny white heads above my lips that I can easily pop, it'll be red for the day but it'll be fine the next day. Is the sleeping change the cause?

tried really hard to pop one of them last night and it worked. a long string of cheese like substance (like what comes out in a blackhead but a lot longer) came out, as well as a hair. Are these ingrown hairs? I thought ingrown hairs are supposed to be red and should hurt.

Anyways, not having any luck popping anymore, what treatment should I seek?
