How bad is my acne, and how to treat? Also Backacne?

My nose area,cheeks, and forehead are full of small black heads. My nose is very oily, even after washing my face, I wear glasses so they are always sliding. When i scrub with soap and warm water each day my nose will get sore and red after, the blackheads will dissapear for awhile, but by night time they are back! Ocsasionally I will get these large bumps on my face that are really oily and have no visible puss, but after a week or so they shrink and go away. Sometimes though I will get really bad swelling, one time one side of my face swelled up, and I could feel a large lump by my cheek, it was as wide 3 quarters lined up in a row! Eventually the lump shrunk to the size of a quarter, and developed with loads of puss. It took me 3 days to pop all the puss out of it. yuck. I also get small pustules on my back area. If I get a bad pimple after popping it I will put hydrogen peroxide on the area to clean it. How can i clean my whole face and back?

I know you feel like you have to but please try not to pop them open. I have had mild-severe acne for a long time. I have the nodular cystic kind. I have popped then in the past and now I can see scarring. Its not terrible bad but I notice it.

On to what you described. I have had places come up that looked like a 50 cent peice, or as big I mean. I really do not know what that is, it could be a gland. I think you need to see a dermatologist.

I have just started getting my acne back and have started using Mary Kay's Blemish Control Toner and have noticed it going away and keeping it away. I have used it in the morning and the evening and it's clearing it up. Also when I wash my face I use Mary Kay's Timewise 3 in 1 cleanser for oily/Combonation skin type. My face feels very clean and it controls the oil as well. Good Luck.
