White bumps on my face

2549285?1203733517
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.

Hi,

You should wash your face several times a day with fresh water. Apply calamine lotion to help soothe the burning sensation.

You could also continue to take the antihistamine medication you are currently taking.

If the lesions do not heal in a couple of days it would be best to get a clinical examination done by a physician.

Let us know how you are doing and keep us posted if you have any doubts.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Hi dandelion333,

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.

Best regards.

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!! ~

Do you think that the Loratadine could be the causation of the allergic reaction on your face.  Same thing is happening to me right now.

Hi guys,

I have developed, what seems to be, the same little white bumps/pimples described on here around my mouth and eyebrows.

MY SOLUTION
Not touching my face, keeping it clean of daily impurities, make-up, my regular creams, drinking lots of water and placing warm compresses as well as washing/gently wiping my face with camomile tea! I have only had it for two days and I see a change. If you are not allergic I would recommend the camomile treatment about twice a day or even three given the level of your condition and skin type. I used dried camomile leafs/flowers to make the tea (once the cup of water reaches a boiling point, give it a minute or two, add about 1 table spoon of dried camomile, remove the pot off the stove and let it sit until it cools down to a warm/luke warm temperature before using it on the face). Be gentle as you touch the affected areas as the white spots/pimples can possibly multiply if popped or broken.

Someone suggested I apply compresses with Witch Hazel on the affected areas but I have yet to try it.


OTHER TIPS (from my experience)
Make-up will only irritate the skin further so try to stay off of it. If you must use it, remove it with "Organic, Virgin Cold-Pressed" coconut oil not regular make-up remover. Coconut oil is great! Not only will it not harm your skin but it will also moisturize it. Again, make sure you are not allergic to coconuts or coconut oil and make sure it is not just any mixture of coconut oil but rather pure "Organic/Virgin Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil"

How I used it: I took a make-up remover pad, put about half a tea spoon or less of coconut oil on it and a bit of luke-warm water (distilled/boiled water is better than straight from the tap), mixed it all in and it worked great :)

Hope this helped!

This only happens to most people a few days after eating GMO Corn or just about any thing that has corn in it. This is new to mankind and only started about 20 years ago, that's when GMO Corn was first introduced into our food chain.after consumption over time, as little as a week for some, or ten years for others, but it will build up in your system.  If you eat or drink any thing with high fructose corn syrup. Death can occurre so stop all consumption of any corn products.
