Hello! I’m a 15 year old teenager with (sometimes) very dry, eczema prone skin, and oily mainly on my t-zone. I’ve had these small spots on my forehead for about three years but now my skin has hit an all time low. A couple years ago it used to be very small pimples on my forehead, which progressed be red and increased in number on my forehead (as seen on the photos, i miss my old skin so much). My spots tend to itch sometimes and looked a bit like whatpeople with pityrosporum had which is what made me think it could be that. Sometimes I get small spots near my nose on my cheek. In all honesty, I don’t have the best or most healthy diet, I tend to touch my spots out of habit, and don't drink much water (I have been a lot more recently), which are probably contributing factors to this. I also wear makeup on my forehead, which therefore could be a case of not removing my makeup properly. I have tried various affordable face washes/scrubs, Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (it actually did an ok job around last year but it doesn’t do much now), Witch Naturally Clear Blemish Stick and Dr. Wu Intensive Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18% (it was recommended to me by a friend, I didn’t try it out for long because I got scared lol). I have not seen to a doctor or dermatologist yet but I thought I’d see what response I would receive on here and do some online research (probably not the best idea). Any feedback would be really funappreciated. Thank you!

Hmm it's a bit hard to tell, but I would go for pityrosporum folliculitis. The bumps are mostly identical and they seem like very stable breakouts overall. But I would go see for help on this one.
