Large Painful bumps on my face
I often get large painful bumps all over my face. I will admit that I am a pimple popper, but these are too painful, and get much too irritated if I pick at it. I try applying creams, washing my face 2-3 times a day, and they dont go away. In fact, sometimes they leave red scar looking spots on my face. They are mostly on my cheeks and forehead.
any help?

Hi. Try to avoid popping your pimples. This will spread bacteria under the skin causing future blemishes and will increase the chance of scarring.
Which creams have you tried? I find Freederm the most helpful over the counter gel. If this proves ineffective see your doctor for a prescription acne gel like Differin or Duac.
Also discuss oral antibiotics with your doctor. Changing to an anti-androgen birth control pill like Diane35 will also help. Eloise x
