Default Any advice for my face and chest???

I hope I put this in the right section.

I've had this for quite awhile now, and everything I've tried doesn't work so, I wanted to see what you guys think.
I have all kinds of bumps on my forehead, and ALL over my chest, my shoulders, and my back. From a distance away, they look like acne of some sort, but their not exactly pimples. They are red so they are pretty eye catching. When I mess with them a lot, they get pretty red and they hurt when I try to squeeze them.

I've tried all kinds of different things to put on my chest and face, and for a little while it works, but sooner or later they come back again. And it's pretty embarrassing when you visit people, and they actually have to mention your chest/face!

Do any of you guys possibly know what it is????? Any advice what I should do? These bumps REALLY exasperate me. Especially when everything I try doesn't work.

I would strongly suggest that you see a dermatologist. That will be your best chance for finding out what it is and getting medication if you need to. Three years ago i thought i had bad acne, and found out that i gave a skin condition called rosacea. Don't wait for it to get worse.

Honestly, without seeing them it's hard to even hazard a guess.

When did they appear/how long have they been on you?
Have you had chicken pox/measles previously?
Been in areas where you could have picked up poison ivy or another such rash?
Could be something as simple as heat rash, or something that requires medication, so if you are able, it's probably best to go in to your doctor. AND STOP TRYING TO SQUEEZE THEM! LOL

Cherry hemangioma. I suspect. Most people have them eventually. I have always had them, as do all my family. I get more as I get older too....

None on my fave though.

They kinda look like this pic.

I'm thinking maybe it is acne but when I let others look at it, they don't think it is. I don't know when exactly it appeared, but it's been awhile now since I've had it.

Definitely check with a dermatologist if you can.

I've been really impressed with ghassoul clay. I love the bar and the clay.

I also love ProductBody's Detox bar.

As far as moisturizing products I've quit using anything but pure argan oil and I've quit getting any sort of pore/bump/tone issues.

I don't have acne, did in the past, but my face does get extremely dry/red sometimes, and what I've found that takes it away is a few tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar and honey each day. Seriously gross stuff, but works like a charm each time. Half and half ratio, mix together, drink up. I store it in the fridge.
