  1. An update on here from me: I started using a zinc-including shampoo (Head and Shoulders) about a week ago, and the bumps have vanished. Completely. This would be the first time in two years that I didn't have to put on some weird topical gel, cream, steroid, or whatever to make that happen. So it's safe to say that I'm elated. For the above poster though, it's also safe to say that anyone who tells you to "just deal with it" is not acting with your interests in mind. That's not to say that whate
  2. Hey, from what I've read and heard about Epiduo, the reason it works so well (and is so highly coveted by some) is because Adapalene is the only form of a retinoid that will not be "deactivated" by the benzoyl peroxide. The reason for this is still unsure, but finding Adapalene over the counter is not possible yet. It's in Differin, a gel-based topical, but once again that's prescription. Hope this helps you a bit.
  3. Oh, but most importantly Ivy, coming from a 22 year old guy, you're very pretty! Don't forget this!
  4. I'v never liked my forehead because it's always been oily and looked like....texturized for some reason if that makes sense lol. The bumps seem to be fading a little due to me scratching them off (big no no lol, but I wanted them gone). Been putting BP on my forehead the last few days and that might be helping. I'm 20, and had mild acne in my teens but since I turned 20 this year my face has decided it would rather have 5-11 bumps on it instead of one at a time which was managable before bec
  5. Hey guys, I just have a quick question: - About two years ago, after stopping using an abusive amount of benzoyl peroxide for a few days on my face, my forehead sprouted a bunch of red and white dots overnight. Literally, I remember driving home from the mountains with my girlfriend at the time being very happy with my choice of getting rid of all harsh chemicals on my face, and the next morning having my forehead feel like sandpaper. I have no acne on other parts of my face, and I just wash it
  6. Also, I've been doing a ton of looking up on this form of folliculitis that seems to be plaguing everyone: pityrosporum, or the currently named "malassezia". While it seems like a possibility, if it happened to be a fungal-based problem I don't want to be too quick to assume. Signs could point to yes though, that it has a similar look, there's no acne on other parts of my face, my forehead is extra oily now, I sweat a lot (from exercise and from biking around everywhere). So for anyone that's in
  7. Hello everyone, I just have a few questions for anyone that is interested in helping me out. To give a little bit of background information: I eat a paleo-based diet (lean meat, vegetables, fruits, some dairy here and there, seeds nuts - so, no gluten, only little bit of rice, little bit of corn - also I drink occasionally, trying to stick to wine and beer). I exercise daily, in the form of olympic lifting and crossfit-based workouts. I drink coffee daily. I take some vitamins (Vitamin A, B5 (
