Bumps on Forehead
For the last 5-6 years I have had a problem with bumps apearing on my forehead.

I have tried several creams and facial washes but nothing seems to help.

It seems to get worse when I sweat but I always wash my face immediately after exercise.

The bumps look as if someone has hit me with a golf ball and they are quite painful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be seborrheic dermatitis,contact dermatitis or sweat dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.

If the symptoms persist,then it would be best to get it confirmed from a dermatologist.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.

Thank you kindly for your advice, However I do not think that this is related to my hair as I have incredibly short hair.

This is an issue on my forehead only just above the eyebrows rather than on my hairline. I am presuming this changes things.
