    hey blitzball,

    i think i have similar small bumps. i was put on Retin-A to help them clear up, but after several months they still didn't go away, so i went off that treatment. but that was just me, i don't react well to meds esp. topical ones. so maybe you could give that a try.

    i also recenty went to the derm about it. and yeah, they never seem interested or caring to help. but hey, we're just another patient to them. anyways, mine told me just by looking at them...that they are acne scarring. so she prescribed some Vitamin A acid cream 0.025%...which is the same as Retin-A i think, maybe stronger.

    i have yet to start this new topical treatment, the derm said that i wouldn't see results until a year later...which sucks b/c i've already had these bumps for 1 1/2 years. mine are on my chin. where are you finding yours?

    Yes i have a ton of bumps that i cant feel and are not visible unless i put my toungue against teh side of my mouth and put out my skin.. then i can see about 20 small bumps and im worried they are incoming pimples but they just seem to stay there and ntohing happens to them. Actually one or two of them actually turned into a small pimple and thats what is worrying me about these bumps becuz i dont want them to turn into to pimples.
