Hi Mari...I remember you from the absoluteacne message board. Weren't you also using an MSM cream?

In any case, I have a few questions for you...please excuse the long message!

What was your mild acne like? Mine is also very mild and consists of clusters of tiny hard bumps under my skin. I've got at least 15-20 of them all over my face...most are concentrated on my forehead, lower cheeks and jawline. And they are HARD. I mean when I can manage to "pop" one of them (which I don't do anymore!) a hard plug comes out. It's not like puss or stuff that comes out of a whitehead. It's really hard and almost looks and feels like a skin colored seed. I'm not sure what these are, but they sure are annoying. I don't think they are blackheads...they don't look black and they are all under the skin.

Fortunately I don't suffer from inflammed pimples (I do sometimes but usually only because I've been picking at something) but I hate these bumps and they have persisted for years. I've had this problem since I was about 18 or 19 and I am now almost 23.

Lately I've figured that it was caused by cosmetics and pore clogging ingredients in my skin care routine, so I changed everything and carefully looked over labels/ingredients and whatnot...but the bumps remain. I don't wear makeup when I don't have to and use a very gentle face wash and gentle, vitamin enriched moisturizer. But they still won't go! I've also got very sensitive skin and can't use topicals or harsh chemicals like bp or salycic acid on them. They practically burn my fair skin right off my face.

I just started using b-5 about two weeks ago and was wondering if you had any of these kind of bumps and if the b-5 helped with that. I'm on a VERY small dose...1 gram per day because I'm afraid I might dry out my skin too much (which is kind of dry normally)...but if the b-5 will help those bumps go away, I would gladly up it to 4 or 5 grams per day.

I'm also taking Vit E, a B complex and Vit C everyday. I drink tons of water and eat a relatively healthy diet.

Thanks for any advice...
