There are lots of small bumps on my face, chest, and back. I am not sure they are acne or not but could you look at it and tell me a solution?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have read your query. I have seen the attached photographs also (attachment removed to protect patient identity). I understand your concern. As per details, it seems that you are having a condition called acne vulgaris. Acne can present as papules, comedones, pustules, cyst, scars. In your case, it seems that you are having grade 1-2 acne. In such cases, I prefer to advise oral antibiotics like Doxycycline, Minocycline, Azithromycin to my patients.
You may apply Clindamycin gel in the morning and Benzoyl peroxide alternatively with topical Retinoids in the night time. In non-responsive cases, consideration is given to start oral Retinoids. Avoid oily food and hair oil application. Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Take care.
