Developed bumps on my forehead? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 1
These are papules (small bumps)
One way of categorizing acne is based on the type of lesion that exists. This would be called papular acne in your case. The papule are usually red and inflamed - but yours aren't. Sometimes these definitions don't fully describe what is happening in the skin, and with your photograph I think a better term would be micro cysts - very tiny cysts, almost like milia. Many of these may need manual or microsurgical extraction by an aesthetician. The next step is decongesting the skin with good skin care products (specifically alpha hydroxy acid) and possibly in office chemical peels. In my practice this type of acne sometimes is related to dietary issues or food intolerance (think dairy and sugar). Hope this helps you! See a good physician that will truly take the time to figure this out.
