Painful bumps

About a month ago I started getting big red bumps on my left side of my face that I couldn't get rid of. Hydrocortisone cream seem to diminish but not resolve them and they are super painful to get rid of.  Well now they have spread and leave bad scars and I'm scared cuz u dint know what they are! Please help

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine what these bumps are. These could be due to infections, inflammations, allergies, a few autoimmune conditions, medication side effects, growths from the skin or underlying tissue etc. While hydrocortisone maybe helpful for allergies/ inflammation it could worsen others. I would suggest an evaluation by a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
