Someone Tell Me If This Is Acne?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have these ting spots or bumps on my forehead, both cheeks but towards the centre of my cheeks. They dont look too bad sometimes but under certain light it looks awful and the texture of my skin looks really bumpy and rough

Some photos are attached, could you please tell me whether it is acne or not

As I have been on many medications and nothing seems to be making a difference

Dont suffer much from cystic acne unless around the time of the month. But these spots are all over my forehead and cheeks making it look very bumpy and ive had these for 4yrs now

Dont know what it is

Any suggestions?post-191765-0-87983500-1427900402_thumb.post-191765-0-87983500-1427900402_thumb.post-191765-0-03447700-1427900506_thumb.post-191765-0-03447700-1427900506_thumb.

From the pictures, it really only looks like you have one very small pimple rather than full out acne. The rest looks like small hyperpigmentation/dark marks. You can help fade them and get a better texture on your skin by exfoliating weekly to help get rid of dead skin cells. You could also try looking into products with AHA and BHA as they do a wonderful job at fading markings.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I don't have much cystic acne but i have small little bumps or spots in the centre of my cheeks and forehead

I do suffer from hyperpigmentation but it shouldn't really give me a rough sandpapery texture

Please look at the photo attached by what i mean from small spots on my forehead

It doesnt look like acne

Hi,

I would appreciate it if someone took a look at this and tell me what on earth it is as my doctor keeps telling me its acne, which I disagree with

Yes - it looks like mild comedonal acne to me. Most dermatologists would suggest a retinoid to treat this kind of acne. It might also be some kind of dermatitis if it's dry and itchy.

Hi Megtree,

Thank you for replying. It looks dry but its not and its quite wrinkly ish. Now and then it can be itchy but not all the time. But its not flaky at all. And i have the same going down on my cheeks near the nose.

I have used a retinoid cream in the past which hasn't helped
