I'm 19 years old. I have never had acne a day in my life. ever. ever ever ever ever. In the past month or less, I have developed small bumps,not nessicarily ready-to-burst white heads or black heads, around the sides of my mouth and forehead. [br>I was taught as a young girl to wash my face every night before I go to bed and every morning when I wake up and have always abided it. Washing my face is my "religion".[br>I am a college student, so It could possibly be stress. I no longer work at hooters so I can't blame the greasy, oily place and food and balancing a job and school. I recently changed my pillow cases, hoping to help with not smothering my face in oil through out the night. I'm no where near about to begin my period or ovulation. I also am not pregnant.[br>Could this be a food allergy? stress? something else? It somewhat looks like the rash I developed due to a sulfa-based antibiotic except not as swollen or red. I'm on no new medications either. I did take a z-pack for an upper respiratory infection a little over a month ago. One of the side effects was acne, however seeing as though it has been so long, I no longer think that it is/was the culprit I'm sitting here with a mud mask on my face right now that I am about to get up and wash off.[br> I really want to know what is causing it so that I can prevent it from happening again as well as remedies for it.
