Angry What are these little bumps?????

I am unsure of what these little bumps i have are. I have them entirely on my forehead and on my cheeks a little bit. My acne is not bad at all, as i would say its more of a mild than anything. I am currently taking 10grams of b5 per day and washing my face twice a day with phisoderm facial cleaner. I have been donig this for the past month in hopes of getting rid of these blasted bumps. I dont know if they are clogged pores or a form of acne. They are just bumps, not white heads or anything. But its ******* me off!! Is there a certain type of facial cleanser i should be using?
Any advice would help tons!!!!
thanks

Ditto! I have the same thing. It is weird because I have been dealing with acne for years and this is totally new!

Re: What are these little bumps?????

I have them too... I think they're just some weird kind of clogged pore that doesn't come to the surface like a blackhead.. I honestly don't know what to do about them because they are annoying as heck.. but thankfully mine pretty much stay where they aren't highly visible.

The weirdest thing is I've just about fixed my skin from the bad relapse I had.. I just have a few pink spots left.. but I still have these bumps.. *sigh*

Re: What are these little bumps?????

I used to have hundreds of these also. After finally finding the right combination for my skin so that I would stop breaking out all the time, I still couldn't get rid of these tiny bumps. Some were so tiny you couldn't even see them unless I was standing in direct sunlight, but I could feel them and they drove me nuts. I read somewhere that glycolic acid gets rid of them, so I bought Glytone Day Lotion 1 for sensitive skin from my derm $45.00 (but you can get it online for $15.95, stupid me). Poof...in like a month they were completely gone. A bunch of them turned into small blackheads first, but eventually everything disappeared. (finally clear for 3 months and counting...knock on wood)

GREAT!!!

Do you think that BHA by Paula's choice would work the same. I have ordered some. It works like a GA but I guess goes deeper to help clear pores. ?

I honestly don't know. I have never used any of the Paula's Choice products and I am not sure if BHA works the same as Glycolic Acid. I do know for sure that the glycolic acid got rid of them.

Paula's Choice also has an Alpha Hydroxy lotion that has 8% Glycolic Acid which is cheaper then the one you mention. Might be worth a try I will try the BHA since I already bought it (it works the same as Glycolic but deeper), and if it doesn't work try the other. Thanks!!!!!!!
