Maybe you are allergic to something?!? If they are not rashes, they are probably tiny whiteheads.

Just leave them! Hopefully they'll fade away on their own.

Who's Ben? Did you mean to say you were on Dan's regimen?

You have clogged pores, both blackheads (open comedones) and whiteheads (closed comedones or bumps).

These are the treatments that work to unclog pores, from strongest to least ... (IMHO)


Prescription retinoids & similar treatments (Tazorac, Retin A, Differin)

OTC high-potency retinol lotion (Green Cream)

OTC low-potency retinol + salicylic acid (Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle formula)

Alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids
