    Forehead bumps - clogged pores

    * I HAVE BEEN READING SOME OF THE OLD THREADS BUT JUST WONDERED IF ANYONE HAS ANY KNEW IDEAS* Thanks please reply even to say you have them too! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">


    Does any body have or know what are these little, well tiny, bumps under the skin that are usually on the forehead. For me they come and go and sometimes there are only noticable in certain lights etc - they're not really spots although they can become spots, because they are like 'blind' - the best way to describe it is like 'goosebumps' that don't go away again - I find sometimes you can pop (though makes skin sore) and they go away. OK theyr'e really tiny and aren't a big problem but why is it some people (that I have noticed) have skin on their forehead smooth like the palm of your hand or sole of your foot whilst others have these bumps??? I'm white male and 24 and was hoping to having clear skin by now, Grrrr. Also any one know how to get rid of them are they some kind of deposit or build up? - thanks


    PS: I FEEL A BIT BAD PUTTING THIS IN THE ACNE SECTION - I HAD IT IN SKIN/HAIR BIT - i KNOW ITS NOT MAJOR LIKE REAL ACNE HOPE THATS OK! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by DeeJay (edited 06-15-2002).]

    Actually, what you're suffering from does sound like a form of acne. From your description, I think what you have can be classified as closed comedones, a non-inflammatory type of acne, but a type of acne all the same.

    There are a few ways to treat these pesky buggers. First, you could have an esthetician unclog the pores manually with a nasty little tool called an extractor. Not the best or the most painless route, but sometimes effective.

    You could also try treating your forehead with products that include salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or other types of rapid exfoliators. There are herbal treatments out there, but I've tried them, and they haven't worked for me. I'm currently using Sage, so we'll see. I'm going to TRY to be patient <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

    The best of luck to you <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

    Thanks LBJG - could you elaborate on 'Sage'some more, I dont know that one - I'm in the United Kingdom. Its tempting to go for that 'clinical' stuff but its sounds so harsh - ouch! and not very 'Manly' some might say <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> I will look into Salicylic acid but I find everything makes my skin really dry which seems to make it worse. Least I have a name to go on now, comedones not bumps! LOL thanks. I will raid my brother's record collection and play Some Jovi in your honour <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

    Re: Forehead bumps - clogged pores

    Hey, it's no problem! You're not the only one suffering with those comedones - lots of people here on the board have and are still trying to treat them, too. LMAO - if you're going to play some Jovi, go with <I>New Jersey</I>, the album. I'm flattered <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

    Anyways, Sage is a line of skin care that a bunch of the people on this board and other boards have found to be the best at clearing their acne, or at least making their skin healthier. Since this message board is against website advertising, I can't post their website here, but if you go to a search engine online and type in "Sage skin care," you will most likely find their website. There are tons of products you can try, and all at different strengths, so if you're sensitive to salicylic acid, you can buy products with lower amounts. The best route for you would be to buy a "try me pack," in which you choose a skin care package that is best for your skin after you fill out a skin profile, and then if you find that the pack doesn't work for you, you can always return it (this is a great option).

    I'd be happy to help you out with the whole process, just like a lot of the posters here have done for me <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Since we can't post e-mail addresses either, I'll just hint that my screen name begins with [removed] <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">

    hey man -- i know acne products dry you out...here are some pointers...

    don't use a medicated wash...they will mess with the pH balance of your skin and make you susceptible to more acne...just use a gentle, mild cleanser or dove soap.

    if you want a salycilic acid product that won't irritate you...try an overnight gel...like neutrogena clear pore treatment...

    Thanks I'll look into that one - on that note.... Anyone tried Neutrogena 'Clear Pore Wash' its orange in colour in a squirt bottle??? I have dug some out that I bought a while back - It feels great, lovely and clean but it does make my skin a little dry and red - Does this subside as you get used to it? Is it best to carry on for a while? or if it irritates ditch it?

    deejay -- i wouldn't use that stuff...the gentle cleansers i know of are dove, cetaphil, purpose, etc....stuff that doesn't have bp or sal. acid in them...just do a search for gentle cleansers...when u wash ur face it shouldn't be left tight or rough...cuz that will just trigger ur sebaceous glands to pump more oil....

    Re: Forehead bumps - clogged pores

    If you have these comeodones removed by those beauticians, it's only gonna be a temporary measure coz they'll just come back after a while. Have you heard of IPL( Intense Pulse Light)? It's actually supposed to fade pigmentation but I find that the IPL treatments have also greatly reduced the comeodones on my forehead & those blackheads, skin-colored bumps as well.

    thebigad, I hear what your saying but I tried Dove and I found it quite harsh for me - like Johnson's Baby Shampoo is lethal and its supposed to be for babies!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif"> This Neutrogena one seems to be ok (fingers crossed) so I'm gonna give it a fair go - but thanks for the tips :thumb:

    Check out SAGE. Their facial shampoo is awesome! For what you are trying to accomplish, it's a little expensive but, I'm sure you will get results. Check out their website.
