Hi, I'm a 24 yr old female and I started getting a rash like symptom at the bottom of my jaw like white bumps tha when squeezed produce stringy like substance. Not a typical whitehead.
Is this a closed comedone? Was thinking folliculitis maybe?
I still get proper spots too, some majorly painful ones too that stay under the skin.
So it started at the bottom if my jaw and spread across my face!
I was using dermalogica products and stopped using them, it may have caused a reaction. Now a couple months later and using Cetaphil it's cleared slightly but the rash is still there and feels really uneven.
Currently on akamin50 twice a day and epiduo 0.1/2.5% fell containing adapalene and benzoyl peroxide.
Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, allergic reactions, acne, folliculitis etc. Since antibiotic medications and ointment containing benzoyl peroxide have not been helpful, I would suggest considering an evaluation by a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
