Feels like it happened over night, yesterday morning when I put on my makeup I didnt have them
Then this morning I woke up and there they were, they feel a little irritated.
I have been using a new facewash, Aveeno skin brightening scrub, for two weeks now, and It's known to dry out skin. I also tried the Rimmel BB cream yesterday for the first time
I have NEVER had these before, and I neeeeed to get rid of them ASAP
I did notice one that I guess had formed into a small pimple
please pleaseee someone help.
Apart from a few large pimples every now and then my skin has always been smooth and clear, especially lately

Looks like dermatitis due to a chemical ingredient in something you used. I'd guess the Rimmel bb cream

Hello,

As the PP suggested, it is possible that what you are experiencing is contact dermatitis that could have been caused by the new cream that you tried. This article has more information on the subject. If stopping the cream does not get rid of the bumps or you see them worsening, it may be a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor or dermatologist to find what is causing your symptoms.

Best wishes,
Atti

Hi, I've had similar problems myself. Were you able to see what ingredient was triggering your rash?

For me, I got reactions around my lips and mouth. I went to a dermatologist who did a patch test and I found out I have to stay away from fragrance and formaldehyde. I've built a tool that helps you find products without certain ingredients in them. Let me know if you want any help. I hope your issue is resolved - I know how much of a pain these things can be, I've been dealing with it for the last 5 years.

I have been going through this for over a year. Most of the time when I wake up they are not there, other times they are already there. They also sometimes have a white spot that after I scratch it open it feels better. They can be extremely itchy other times I don't know they are there until I touch my face. I had gone to the dermatologist, she had no idea and gave me 3 different creams to try. None of them worked. She then took a sample when I went in with one and still no idea. So after about 6 months I have given up.
I have tried all different lotions, no lotion, changed my pillows many times and also laundry soap. Nothing has helped!!!!!
