Hello out there,

I'm posting this today because I need help. Not just with figuring out my skin problem, but emotionally this is taking a big tole.

I have been doing a lot of research on my skin, as I've had this rash-like condition on my face for months. Over the course of the holidays It's been much, much worse. I really think it could be a condition called acne cosmetica. Acne caused by cosmetics. In my case, I've been using a mineral makeup, but it seems like the more I cover the problem, the worse it gets.

The symptoms are rash like spots all over my face, in places I've never had acne before. The spots are dry and flaky, very red. Not like a pimple at all really. But I'm also getting small whiteheads, as well as Cystic acne on my neck line which I had also before the problem. I've totally changed my diet with little results.

I'm hoping there is someone out there that knows about this condition and can help!
