    Angry 1000 skin colored bumps

    My biggest problem (but not my only!) are skin colored bumps all over the cheeks. If I look into my rear view mirror in the car, and there's direct sunlight shining all over me, there are a zillion skin colored bumps. If I squeeze them, a line of puss comes out, but also leaves the bump a big bulging bloody mess.

    This is p*ssing me off for the last 3 years on and off. Is it hormones? Is it oil/dead skin? Is it foundation? Salicylic acid/bp? What is plugging these up??????

    I have been reading these boards on and off for 3 years. Whatever happened to poreoilyme's method of getting puss out of our bumps? B5 gel?

    What are you supposed to use to unplug these??????

    I had those bumps when i wore foundation. After I stopped wearing foundation the bumps went away. I am allergic to foundation. Don't sqeeze them cuz that can cause scarring.

    It's a vicious cycle: I wear the foundation to cover any redness/lumps and then the foundation turns around and clogs the pores up?!? Aghhhhh!

    What about Laura Mercier mkup?

    Am I the only one who has these? I find these more annoying than any random red lump I may get, because I can't kill these like I can the big ones!

    I get these as well, and im not sure the entire blame can be put on foundation for everybody, because this is what is covering myy entire back and chest. they arent usually red like normal pimples or big, but very small, TONS of them, and very hard tto get rid of.

    I just ordered carley's clear and smooth and am going to try this--nothing else has helped!

    the only time i have had that is when I have a yeast issue going on...which has been a very long time, but acidolphilus cleared it right up along with some yeast cream.
    just a thought.
