I am a 28 year old female that developed this problem beginning in August 2010. I have these very tiny white head pimples that are spreading over my face, but mainly in the lower half of my face. If I pop one of them a little pus comes out but nothing substantial. It will eventually heal, but then a few days later others will appear in the same area. The woman who does my facials believes I am not getting all the pimple forming bacteria out when I pop them and that the infection is spreading under the skin. I have tried spot treating with benzoyle peroxide, salycic acid, a clay mask, and just leaving them alone but nothing seems to help. This is extremely frustrating, please offer some advice if you can. Thank you.
