Hi there.

I've not changed cosmetic products. The spots on my forehead really just started maybe have had them for a couple weeks I haven't done much of anything. I've just been showering regularly have been afraid to use any new products and make it worse. That's why I reached out. Do you have any recommendations for what I can try? They seem to itch a little bit on my forhead and seem to be spreading. I never had any issues with my forehead but al the sudden I'm breaking out a bunch. They are definitely getting worse.

My skin is very sensitive I always tend to breakout around shaving areas but thought it was very strange to have it all over my forhead and I can't seem to get rid of it.

I've been using facial washes etc shower twice a day. Please let me know if you have any suggestions thank you - what are these, how can I treat? Pics attached.



Ur having acne vulgaris grade 2, which seems to have worsened a little. However, it can b managed wit proper medication. U shouldn't prick at ur pimples as it could get infected and leave spots all over.

Start using Suncros aquagel , which is a sunscreen, daily morning... u can use Fash facewash twice daily.. apply Benzac AC 5% gel, for 2 hrs over d pimples daily in d evening...

cut down on sweets, junk food and oily stuff... d response would b slow and can take upto 4 weeks... if not satisfactory v could step up to retinoids
