I have subclinical acne. (photos)

I have very bad small spots which are not filled with puss but are laying on top of my skin. They are more viable in the light or if I have makeup on!!

Bumps on face

The bumps you are are referring to appear most consistent with a type of acne. Patients can develop comedones or otherwise known as whiteheads and blackheads. Try a benzoyl peroxide wash or salicylic acid based wash. In addition to this, a retinoid product is great for comedones (a little goes a long way - only need a pea-size amount for the entire face). If this does not help, see your dermatologist as bumps can be do to other skin conditions.

This should be seen by a dermatologist. Topical therapy including Retin A, a good cleanser are needed. Laser treatments or chemical peels can be added if not improving.
