Sudden forehead acne - with pictures

Recommended Posts

Hi there,
Ive been on antibiotics for about 4 months, and whilst my cheekand jaw cystic acne has cleared i got a breakout on my forehead about 2 months ago.

Ive never had forehead acne before so it was very sudden, and now it just stays there and doesnt change.

Can somebody help with an explanatiom or solutiom please?
Much appreciated

It's unlikely that there's an explanation. Acne can just move around for unexplained reasons and there's little tangible evidence that certain effects cause acne in certain areas.

About 10 years ago I got myself completely clear, but then, for about 10 weeks, I just kept getting pustules popping up on my forehead. Eventually they calmed down, but there was no single reason I could put it down to. My treatment regime didn't change, but my forehead just seemed to get really prone to acne.

All I can suggest is try using a topical product on your forehead too. That's assuming you're only on oral antibiotics at the moment.
