I have these red, itchy bumps on my face that appear mainly on my cheek bones near the eye area and around my hair line on my forehead. I do not wear glasses, i have tried changing creams and washes, nothing seems to help. I live in Canada and I have been waiting for 4 months to see a dermatologist. When i squeeze the bumps only a little bit of puss comes out sometimes, at other times nothing comes out. They are always red, regardless if i touch them or not. The bumps are really affecting me and making me not want to go anywhere. Could the bumps be because of birth control pills? I am on Diane-35. I have photos if they would help.
I submitted a photo, it is pending. My skin is a little dry now, due to the weather change. However I have had the red bumps now for about 4 months, even in the summer when my skin was not dry. I do not know what you mean by scales.
there are no scales on the bumps, the bumps are the same texture as the rest of my skin, however the bumps are just red, a little raised and itchy. If i try and squeeze them, a tiny tiny bit of clear puss will come out.
May just be a rash or a form of dry skin, an allergic reaction, I'd suggest going to see a family doctor or a dermatologist, he'd probally prescribe you with a cream to mend the itching and eventually take away the rash/bumps.
