Painless Bumps on my nose

Recommended Posts

I had this painless bumps for a while now and I also had an oily, acne-prone type of skin.

Do you know what is this?

These bumps are probably causes by malasezzia or candida fungus. Skin problems from fungus are caused by taking antibiotics and some other meds.

I suggest you do the following -

1. Buy clotrimazole topical antifungal cream (often sold as Canesten - no prescription needed) and apply it to the areas with the bumps 2-3 times a day.

2. Wash your hair in an antidandruff shampoo.

3. Do NOT apply any moisturisers or organic oils to the areas with the "acne". Keep your skin very dry. Wipe off sweat. Fungus loves moisture. And one type of fungus that causes acne FEEDS on organic oils.

4. Do NOT exfoliate your skin

Topical antifungal creams are totally safe.

Do you have dandruff or a white tongue ? Have you taken antibiotics ? If so, which ones ? Have you taken other meds.

Hi Aussie Scientist thank you so much for the advise. I am using Canesten for 2 weeks and I had to say that my bumps on my nose started to fade. 

thank you so much. You're a lifesaver.
