    Small Bumps on my Forehead
    MelBrody posted:
    Hello all! I am 27 years old and have always struggled with moderate Acne. Nothing I do or use works I just have to live with it. In fact most of the "systems" out there seem to make it worse. As if that is already hard enough over the last year I have been getting these Flesh color bumps all over my forehead. They are small, look like the beginning of pimples but are not pimples. The are red when I get out of the shower but fade to flesh color after a little white. It is embrassing because it looks like I have tiny pimples all over my forehead. I do not know what to do. Rinses and acne treatments dont work on my skin and I do not use any hair product. Any suggestions as to what these could be and what to do about them? I would so apperciate it.

    not sure if you will see this a year later but it sounds like it isnt acne for a yeast overgrowth from your hairline. this is common especially in females. the yeast is called pityrosporum and it can be treated with a simple nizoral(ketoconazole)/antifungal hair wash which can be purchased over the counter. Good luck

    on a side note - if you have gone to a dermatologist regarding your acne would you do me a huge favor and complete a 7-question anonymous survey for me? there is a google doc link at and it should take you less than a minute to complete. Thanks!
