I'm 35 and I have had this annoying, stubborn condition for a good I think going on 4 years and have been to a number of doctors that have recommended some kind of Lactic lotions that I can say unfortunatley don't work. I have this on my upper arms trunk and upper legs and scarring has taken place from I guess you could say my picking at them. they say it's genetic and there's not a lot I can do and that's big time depressing for me. There like pimples but there not. Its and overgrowth of skin around the hair follicles which plugs them up and become bumps
and are very common on the backs of armms, which at times can become folliculitus. They say it subsides as you get older but come on, I am skepticle. Does anyone out there have this condition where it's out of control. It really affects my self confidence for it's my biggest downfall. How can I get this under control and will I ever be able to put this behind me. And what about scarring. Misery loves company talk to me. Reply I'll be checking
