Acne Bumps

I am having uneven bumps which have a white substance in it (when I exfoliate it with a blackhead remover, it comes out). They are below my eyes and adjacent to my nose, or you can say on the cheekbone area. It does not look good in the photos and in sunlight. Any medicine or lotion which can help to get rid of these. I have also attached a photo of it. Thanks

Hi. Greetings. Acne is a chronic problem. You seem to have used some steroid related creams in the past. You may need a few medications and lifestyle changes for long term improvement.
The following would help you :
1. Daily use of gel based sunscreen in day time of SPF 30 applied half hour before sun exposure to prevent darkening of spots.
2. Daily bed time use of retinoid cream
3. Antibiotic agents short course-  prescribed by dermatologist for controlling out bursts .salicylic acid based or benzoyl peroxide based face wash for oily skin.
4. Evaluation by dermatologist for any other trigger or need for oral retinoids- this will indeed help but should be taken only if necessary and under monitoring. Also salicylic acid Peel if needed
5. Procedures like microneedling rf, fractional lasers or just microneedling for scars are helpful and necessary. Chemical peels for acne and spots.
6. Kindly read my blog on daily skin care on Practo health feed. Daily fitness work out and loads of fruits and veggies will help loads in improving your skin.
