    Small Acne
    An_244448 posted:
    Hello everyone, I have always had prefectly clear skin, then now all of a sudden (and in my senior year) I have been getting extremely bad acne on my forehead. How ever it's not really acne, it's a bunch of flesh colored bumps and if you look really close SOME of them have black heads, but not all... How can I get rid of these bumps? They're very noticeable and extremely embarrassing!!

    it could just be an overgrowth of a normal skin/head yeast called pityrosporum. it is very common in women and usually on the hairline and forehead. you can try treating it with an over the counter nizoral/ketoconazole hair wash. good luck
