  1. Hey everyone. I have had white spots on my face for about 5 years now, I think. When they first started I didn't think much of it, I think they were mainly on my chin, then some on the right side of my nose. The ones on my chin are basically what my face is now, I don't remember my face without them. And I tried for the longest time to not care about them. I've had acne before, not too crazy but stubborn acne. I've never played with them. Never popped them. I never tried to craft some home remedy I wasn't sure about. I just let them be. And I tried to do the same with these white spots for some years now. But It's getting worse and worse. When I squeeze my cheeks, or the place between my brows, or my chin with my hands, there appears even more of them, that I previously couldn'T without squeezing. I went to three dermatologists, one of them said it might e past acne scar, one of them said they might be fat glands, and the last one said he didn't know, and gave me "acnelyse" which sheds skin and "sivex" which is a protective lotion I believe. I'm going to include some old photos and the ones I just took with the phone's flashlight, zoomed in. This one is from June 2016. I know it's low res but the sun makes the spots better visible, as if they already werent. September 2016. Obvious raise in chin & right side of nose. October 2016. Low res again. Now for the photos I just took. Left side of my nose. Note that when my skin is stretched, these spots aren't visible, they don'T even leave a trace when I stretch the skin. they just dissappear. So it's not like acne where it would be more visible when you stretch the skin. Left side 2. My nose also has 3-4 bumps, one of them is very visible, right on the upper side of the mini mole on my nose. Squeezing my cheek. Left side acne & spots. Many on the chin also visible. Right side again. this is where it's worst. Left side photos look worse but right side is actually much much worse irl. Chin. Flash makes them look less by destroying the shadows but they're still visible. Last one, squeezing my chin. I'm a 21 yo male. I've tried the "acnelyse" the third derm gave me and it doesnt seem to do much. Maybe it's my mood bur they definitely feel worse on some days and better on some days. So maybe it's an allergy of some kind? I smoke but thse started long before I started smoking. Only thread I've found with almost the exact spot photos is this: www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/326959-raised-bumps-on-chinhypertrophic-scar/ Some users say they have the same thing but when I search their post history, I find photos that are nothing like mine. Mine have never been red, always whiter. They don't burn or itch, they're just there. They're not squeezable, they're like a part of the skin. My first phost here. I don't know if I've done something wrong. thanks in advance. If you're going to recommend a doctor, I live in Turkey.
  2. Hi, so I posted a while ago expressing my concern over my skin, my acne in particular. I know that my acne isn't severe- or even close, but I am asking for help because I personally want help as I am unhappy with my skin, so please don't comment if it isn't going to do so. I have continued to stick to my normal regime, in hope that doing nothing would help, but as expected I was wrong. I've took the pictures attatched today which is probably my best skin day in a while but as I type this I am in so much pain from my chin acne that I can't even move my chin. I am becoming desparate as summer approaches- I still don't know whether my acne is hormone caused as I just have it all the time so I can't tell if it gets worse on my period or not. Originally my acne was mainly concentrated on the centre and crease of my chin, but recently it's been spreading all over my face. The acne is also painful under the skin cysts which are most difficult to get rid of. They even show through my makeup - that I hate wearing but I have to due to my self consciousness. To add to my problems I am under a lot of stress and am currently on a weight loss regime. I am desparate now so could you please recommend advice and products. I have normal/combination sensitive skin and bright red acne scars so I could do with a product to lighten those. Thank you!
  3. Hi there! I've never had too much acne before. Now all of a sudden these red dots are breaking out on my forehead. They aren't itchy. I'm not sure if they are acne. Does anyone have any input? It has been 3 days and I've only been getting more.
  4. I developed a rash on my face a few months switching onto birth control and a few weeks into a new face wash. I went to the doctor, got prescribed a face wash and pills and my rash went away but now I have severe ace/facial dandruff. I am currently using baking soda and on a new medicine but it's continuing to get worse. Does this happen often?

    Hi! I'm Alanis. I started getting acne for the first time ever about a year and a half ago. I'm eighteen. When I first went to my doctor with the issue, I had pretty bad acne on my forehead, the upper cheeks under my eyes and by my nose, and chin. My doctor gave me doxycycline and epiduo. I was only given doxycycline for about a week and I'm using the stronger upiduo now. Since then my acne became under control. I became vegan, tried murad products, Paula's choice, Proactive moisturizer, (cetaphil breaks me out badly) and even saw a dermatologist. My dermatologist said my acne wasn't that bad (but for never having acne and its now spreading, it's bad for me!) so she did next to nothing for me. My acne was getting better at times and then the same. Now, I have acne on my actual cheeks/side of face and all the same spots it was before except the forehead. My face also gets a lot of redness, it's sensitive and typically oily. Like I said, I never had this problem before so it's emotionally draining to go from nice skin to what seems like a mess now. Does anyone have some specific tips/dietary knowledge?
