Few days ago, when i woke up i noticed my my cheeks were red and a little swollen. Then, the next day the readness seem to be going away and my cheeks, chin, and area around my lips had many small white bumps. It doesn't itch but there is a very minimal buring kind of feeling. I have no idea what caused it, my brother works at a pharmacy and thinks that its due to some allergy but i didn't do or eat anything that i am allergic to. I took Loratadine but i don't think it did anything.
i have the same thing right now, its on the corners of my mouth and spreading on to my cheeks, and yes i didnt eat anythign that im allergic too, can you please tell me if it healed already, im really stress when i have things on my face. i went to my dermatologist and she said my its because of dryness coz im taking roaccutane and some other medications like s.a. lotion etc. ive had these small bumps for more than two weeks and now its crawling up to my cheeks. i wasnt able to visit my derma coz shes only here in my country 3 days a week. i really want to get rid of this. any suggestions would help.
How long have you had this symptom? How long have you taken this medication? Do you think these look like some "white-heads"? Have you had any itching, pain or bleeding with these complaints?
It is possible that these are either "white-heads" or "dryness" or "allergy" possibly. The best course forward is to visit your dermatologist again and get it reexamined. Meanwhile, you make try to keep the skin optimally hydrated and hygienic. This ca be achieved by having lot of water, using mild soap, medicated sun-screen and a good moisturizer.
Do let us know the answer to these questions and if you may have any other questions.
I have the same thing. Small hard white/clear bumps that started out on the right corner of my face close to my mouth, and are now spreading over the entire right side of my face. I went to a dermatologist and she said it just looked like an allergic reaction, but a more specific answer and solution would be much more helpful. I thought it was possibly my face wash that was causing the break-out but haven't used anything except for mild soap and water for over a month and a half now. I also thought it might be caused by make-up which does seem to make it a little worse, but after wearing nothing for 2 weeks they were still there. I researched what it could be and do you think it could be Milia? What exactly is that caused by and what could get rid of that? Thanks!! ~
