Disgusting facial & neck bumps

Recommended Posts

Okay so I'm 17. I'm on Accutane for a seemingly hopeless reason. My dermatologist says I have Milia. Others have said it's closed comedones, others have said it has to do with something fungal. The Accutane doesn't seem to be working. I've had these bumps for years and they produce a stringy, white/yellow fluid when extracted. 
I just want some advice, what is this? What can I do to have a clear face? Will I ever have a clear face? Reccomend me some regimens and advice, please. I want to be normal.

I can't believe derms would prescribe accutane for milla - crazy. When you're done with accutane, go see a facialist that has  experience with acne patients.  They may be able to do a series of extractions to help.

Hmm.. I agree that that isn't neccesarilly acne thus not requiring isotretinoin, but that's not to say that accutane won't help. Accutane cleared all of the closed comedones on my forehead. How long have you been on it so far?

AUGH I had the same bumps on my neck. It was the WORST. Every thing that wouldn't work topically made me feel helpless.

Honestly, the only thing that worked for me was using hemp seed oil to clarify my skin at the end of the day and then I cut out all dairy. Like, I would obsessively cut out all of my the dairy in my diet. It was hard (cheese is so delicious ;_; ) but it worked! The types of bumps that I saw went away. Scarring and redness went away with some aloe vera gel that I applied before a moisturizer each morning and evening. 

With that, also try a pro-biotic like acidophilus? That with some of the kombucha tea I've been taking helped with the last of the bumps. I haven't read that there are issues to take acidophilus with accutane, but talk to your doctor!

I hope that helps!

thanks for the info! I'm glad to hear that someone else has had this problem and has gotten through it. I'm definitely gonna take that into account, even though it will take a lot given the amount of bumps..

My cousin had the same problem and I believe he took a similar medicine for it, its didn't really help him and he just got worse acne. it could be just him. I would try cutting dairy and any unhealthy foods and try it out. You could also go to a aesthetician so they can help you locate the source of whats causing it. You could also try using natural ingredients on your skin and seeing what foods might be making it worse! My cousin's skin problems eventually went away, and I think he just went more natural and healthier. I'm not exactly sure. I hope this helps!!!!!GOOD LUCK!XD :) :) <3

If accutane doesn't work then no need to take it. Because it'll just harm or organs more. Please do not go extract those or else they grow back 100x more. I advise you to get in contact with a herbalist!!!!!!!! Not much people ever think of herbal medicine when it comes to clearing acne. Because in the U.S practice more of western medicine. But herbal medicine will detox & cleanse the organs that is causing your acne! Herbal medicine is tough to drink but it will be all worth it! and no side effect! matter of fact that it healthy for your body! I had acne like yours but mine doesn't go down into the neck area but I had big cystic acne under my jawline and chin. I drank the herbal medicine for a month then within the following month it started to heal! No more cystic acne!!! just scars i have to take care of now. Plus it didn't break me out or anything!
Please take it into consideration!!!!
