Hi,
How are you? Can you elaborate on the bumps that you mentioned? Acne usually occurs when pores on the surface of the skin become clogged (with bacteria, dirt and cells) which leads to pimples.  Hormone changes related to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, OCP and stress as well as medication side effect, high levels of humidity and sweating may be responsible. Try not to squeeze or scratch it to prevent scarring. Regular washing of the face, eating healthy, and drinking plenty of fluids may help. However,  if it persists, it is best that you check with your doctor or be referred to a dermatologist for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted
