Little White Bumps On My Face......

What are they?

Around my mouth and on my chin area I have little white bumps, not spots, just bumps around those areas, what are they? Also what is the best way of getting rid of them?

My face is about 90% clear due to Prometheus's and Sweetjade's diet tips (Thank you so much BTW), all I got left is red marks which is a big big drag because I can't seem to find anything to get rid of them and also little white bumps, anyone have any feedback, it would be much appreciated

Thanks

Re: Little White Bumps On My Face......

I had those YEARS ago when I was about 18 - you can't see them unless you stretch the skin, right?!! But, they add a weird unevenness.

I ended up taking accutane and within a few months they'd gone. Before that I tried all the topical lotions (retin a etc) but it just made my skin peel

Re: Little White Bumps On My Face......

I have them too!!!! This is my biggest concern on my face, zits i can deal with, but the uneven smoothness and bumpy feel and look are sooooooooooooooo embarassing!!! Even my brother commented and asked me if i ever tried Proactive .... I would love to know how to get rid of them too.... My brother told me his ex girlfriend had lazer or peels done and it worked wonders....Anyone know of a good cream that could make them vanish ???

I use to get something like that on my arms, they where called heat bumps.

Do any of you guys live somewhere warm and moist?

Re: Little White Bumps On My Face......

I had them too...my esthetician said that they were calcium deposits. I would get them right around my mouth. The best way to get rid of them, in my opinion, is to have an esthetician extract them. They can do it without damaging your skin and they come out immediately, instead of waiting for a cream or lotion to do it.

Re: Little White Bumps On My Face......

I have them right under my lips and around there. You had to strech the sking to really see them.

I used a LOT of Bp. Like globbed it on for a few days and moisterized heavily too. Cleared them up in three days with no reprecussions.So far.(been a year)

Re: Little White Bumps On My Face......

I have them, too. Mine are mainly on my chin and nose. I'm 31 and started getting them after my first child 10 years ago. I have no idea what they are called but they seem to worsen around my cycle.

The dermatologist gave me spiro last week. I had a severe allergic reaction to it after taking one 50 mg tablet. I almost died. I'm not going back to the dermatologist. I'm just going to deal w/ my little bumps on my own somehow.
