Since the redness and white little bumps have appeared recently without any history, so most likely it looks like irritated hair follicles and folliculitis. It is important to keep the area clean andapply some topical antiseptics. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove and avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or Neosporin are also useful.
If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist. Oral antibiotics may be needed. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Is it alright if I apply benzol peroxide on the redness/bumps and top it off with aveeno daily moisturizing lotion?
You can apply benzoyl peroxide and some non perfumed mositurising lotion, Aveeno is a good option. You can also use Benzoyl peroxide lotion or gel once at bedtime. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of your face. If your skin becomes red or peels, you are using too much of the medicine or applying it too often.
I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing. Warm regards.
I've been applying bp and aveeno on my face and edges around the nose for approximately two weeks now (following the acne.org regimen) and the redness around the nose still haven't gone away. Should I just keep doing this and hope for the best?
Oh and also the redness is still covered in large looking white pores but is only visible when I stretched the area out as mention in my first post..
