The past year I've been dealing with mini bumps all over my cheeks, around my jaw line and forehead, what can I do? (photo)

Acne control in asian skin
I would see a skin specialist. I would start you on Retin A, hydroquinone, and chemical peels. Topical meds such as antibiotics and cleansers would help too. Given you have darker skin type, I would refrain from using lasers at this point. Oral antibiotics are sometimes needed.
Thanks for sharing the picture. Looks like comedones and papules. Mild exfoliation is not enough to treat these stubborn lesions. Start priming your skin with a mild dosage of topical retinoids along with topical antibiotics. protect your skin with moisturisers and sun protectors. Meet your cosmetic surgeon or a dermatologist to guide you with chemical peels. Hope this will help you.
