Red bumps on face
Sep 29, 2015
I keep getting these red spots on my cheeks under my nose and on my chin. I am 23 years old and I have never had any skin problems before. I went to my family doctor and she recommended going to a dermatologist and he told me it was a former of adult rosecea and gave me a gel to put on it. The gel only made it about 10 times worse and the only thing I that has worked to clear it up are steroid pills and I obviously cannot take them for too long or forever so I am trying everything I can to find help. I went to an esthetician and I showed her the photos of what I had going on and she said that she was no doctor but told me that she did not believe it was rosecea and that maybe it was the birth control I was on that was causing hormonal acne. I started taking it in May of this year and my face started "breaking out" in July. I can not seem to get an appointment with any other dermatologist that takes my insurance at least not for a few months and I am willing to wait but cannot live with my face the way that it is and keeps showing up. It comes out of nowhere and the only face wash that I use is an oatmeal bar of soap from the healthfood store and only wear makeup for work. Some of the red bumps have a head and pus and it starts off really small and then I will wake up and it will just explode all over my face and looks just awful. I am reaching out for help until I can seem to get a second opinion. If anyone has any advice or has seen this and thinks they can help I am open to any and all suggestions. As I said I am 23 years old and have never had skim problems and I would just like my life back!!
