Incredibly stubborn eyebrow acne

Hello,

I usually don't get acne too bad but a few months back this random red bump appeared between my eyebrows and it got bigger and bigger. One day I was washing my face and part of the skin of it came off and now I've got this stubborn red bump that's trying to heal myself which just won't go away. I have no idea how to deal with this as I've already tried Tretinoin, Cortisone, Ice, Warm Compress, Sacylic Acid, etc.

Try applying a topical antifungal cream such as clotrimazole cream (Canesten) - which is a broad spectrum antifungal cream. If clotrimazole does not fix the problem, then try aplying terbenafine topical antifungal cream (Lamisil) - best for malasezzia fungal acne. If that does not fix the problem, then try applying topical nystatin antifungal cream - best for candida fungal acne.

I don't know, but topical antifungal creams are totally safe and you'll soon find out if the problem is fungal. "Strange" skin conditions are often fungal.

Fungal skin conditions are caused by taking or applying antibiotics and some other meds. - cortisone, tretinoin, etc.

Make sure you wash your hands twice before applying the antifungal cream/s to avoid getting a secondary staph or other bacterial infection. And use a clean towel to dry the affected are after washing.

Thank you, but I've been using the Tretinoin, Cortisone BECAUSE this thing appeared. I think it may have been from shaving between my eyebrows with a clipper.
