I am 47 years old and I have rarely had pimples or acne problems by entire life. I understand as we get older our bodies change including the skin on our face.For the last year my pores have enlarged and I have many white bumps under the skin on my right side of my face around the chin, jaw and top of the cheek bone down to the jaw with a few a couple in the middle of my right cheek. They arent hard bumps and most if squeezed while produce a white string substance and it never goes away. I wash my face morninng & night and have tried every type of face wash hoping to find my cure. Can you please tell me what this is and how do I get rid of them.
Hello and hope you are doing well.
I can detect the exact cause only after I examine you. The common causes of white bumps on face, jaws and cheeks are milia, ingrown hair or white heads. The dead skin gets accumulated in small pockets on the surface of the skin. Comedones or whiteheads are excess fats and wastes that are trapped in a hair follicle and so they clog up the pore. Another possibility is a viral infection called Molluscum contagiosum.It causes appearance of flesh colored papules on the skin which contain a small cheesy substance when squeezed. Do get it checked by a dermatologist. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. Do write to me again.
Best wishes and regards!
