Blood-Filled Blackheads?

1 post in this topic

I haven't been able to find any information on the weird problem I'm having, so I'll come to you!

I have never had any acne of any sort on my cheeks. Suddenly, I'm getting deep set blackheads on my cheeks near my nose and they almost resemble tiny bruises. Sometimes when extracted it's a black filament looking plug attached to a bigger semi solid white plug. Other times it's just blood, not coagulated at all. Just straight liquidy blood.

I was on a topical retinoid and antibiotic about two months ago, if that offers help in a diagnosis.

I just don't understand how for 21 years I've had no problems on my cheeks and now I'm getting something for which I can find no info! Any help would be appreciated :)
