Question small holes in my face

I've been noticing for the past few months now that I am getting small holes on my cheeks. It seems as if they come out of nowhere. I don't have any acne problems. It starts off as one small hole and if there is another one close by they will merge and form a larger hole. Has this happened to anyone??

Also...I've been getting these red dots on my face. They stay for awhile and then they turn brown and look like freckles. Has this happened to anyone??

I'm 20 years old, never had any acne problems, I'm not on any medications...I just don't understand what is happening to my face. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Mysteg, your situation seems fairly unique, or at least very rare.

Re the 'holes' I would strongly consider going to a dermatologist to seek advice - I don't have a high regard for derms (quite the opposite actually), but in your case I think it could be worthwhile, cos it could be some rare underlying skin problem which has been medically identified and which can be dealt with.

I guess it is particularly important to see a derm if these 'holes' are permanent - do they go away and come back again, or have the holes which have formed just stayed on your cheeks for good?

Re the 'tiny dots,' this doesn't sound like acne, and may be also worth consulting with a derm.

The holes and brown spots are permanent. I couldn't get an appointment any sooner than next month. I just wanted to find out if anyone else has had this problem...

Another post reminded me to add this: the only products that I use for my face are Johnson and Johnson's Head to Toe Baby Wash and Oil of Olay moisturizer. Could there be a correlation??

No one has experienced this before??

Not sure I've heard that term before...If you're implying that I did something to cause the holes, there was nothing there to pick in the first place-they just appeared out of the blue
