Pus filled bumps

About a week ago I stopped taking my birth control medicine, as it was making my blood pressure rise. Since I have come off of the medicine, I have begun to break out with pus filled clusters of bumps. It started on my cheek. Now it is on my cheek, forehead, to the side of my eye (closer to the hairline), around my mouth, along my jaw, down my neck, onto my chest, and also I have some on my bottom. They seem to keep spreading. They itch and look awful. Please help!!!

sometimes when your on medication for a long time your body gets use to it and since your not taking the pills any more your body is not use to not the pills so your body will act and preform different then usual.

I'd recommend that you get to your primary care physician for evaluation.  I'm not sure what those "bumps" are, but it could be ordinary pimples that were helped to keep under control while you were on the bcps (birth control pills).
Avoid things such as chocolate, caffeine, fried foods, to see if that helps to eliminate them.  Wash your face more frequently, keep your fingers, hands away from your face.  You could also try some of the over the counter acne medicines.  
I realize that you're in your 20's, but I've seen people, myself included get pimples into their 50s.  Good Luck!
