Help! Little flesh colored bumps all over forehead and chin!!

Recommended Posts

 I've struggled with acne for about two years now. I'm an 18-year-old female. I used to get large cysts around my chin/jaw area and on my forehead. Side note: if anyone has ways to get rid of scarring like hyperpigmentation, please let me know! The major problem is that i have these small hard flesh colored bumps all over my face. On my chin, I can squish them out and typically white hard dirt or something will come out. But on my forehead, nothing really happens. They don't become inflamed typically unless I mess with them. They are so hard to get rid of! I feel like I've done everything! I went to the dermatologist 6 months ago and she put me on doxycycline and gave me a retinoid cream. That helped for a while but once i got off it got worse. I continue to use the cream but its not really working. I've also recently been put on birth control to help the cystic hormonal aspect. I use an oil-based cleanser to double cleanse at night and a noncomedogenic moisturizer. I've also recently tried Paulas choice BHA liquid too, about two weeks ago. I use benzoyl peroxide and Mario Badescu drying lotion as a spot treatment as well! I also recently moved into a dorm where its very humid and damp so i think that making it worse!  If anyone has any idea of what to do or how to prevent this acne please let me know!!
