Bumps on face that spread

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on face that spread


I have read online that hives generally are larger patches of redness usually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the torso, and rarely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the face. I am washing my face twice a day with a gentle cleanser, and applying hydrocortisone cream for the face itching. I'm not sure if I should be doing this. Would it be better to keep my face dry? I feel the rash to be very oily especially right underneath my eyes on either side of my nose.
Since then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> have spread down my neck and onto my chest. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> usually flare up after washing my face, however I have been using the same face wash for the past two years. The bumps are not itchy, nor are they filled with pus.
I developed a little patch of small, skin-colored <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> turn red when irritated, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right side of my face some time ago, in addition to my regular acne. I started taking Yaz birth control, and then went to see a dermatologist who had me use Cera Ve cleanser and moisturizer and apply a Clindamyacin cream in the morning and Tretinoin at night. This helped my regular acne, but this little patch of bumps didn't go away, and another cluster started developing on my chin.
Then you put your face in the steam <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> comes off of the boiling water and stay <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> way for a few minutes. It helps to open your pores and won't raise your body temp.
I feel like each morning when I wake up more and more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face and it seems like there's millions! It started on my forehead and now it's working its way down to my neck. I use Dove Sensitive body wash to wash my face and have for years. As well as Aveeno Clear Complexion face lotion. But like I stated earlier, I've used all the products for a while, nothing is new that would cause something that I haven't noticed before. Please help!! I've attached a photo of part of my forehead.
Conditions like acne, cyst,milia all can cause small bumps on the face arms and chin.Milia are tiny white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> or small cysts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the skin and they occur when dead skin becomes trapped in small pockets at the surface of the skin .are these bumps pearl colored? If yes then it is possible that these are molluscum contagiosum .It is a viral infection which causes appearance of small flesh colored bumps and is contagious. Stop scratching or popping it.
The bumps come and go but the pain only hurts when the bump is touched. I also break out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my nose, cheeks and forehead.

But Can the Genital Herpes virus be spread to the face? Or is it possible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> he gave me both Genital and Oral herpes? It looks like a case of acne/pimples. But It just seems so strange because I normally have always had clear skin, even as a young teen. Any advice would be very appreciated. Please Help if you can. I have no idea what to do. If anyone knows any way I would be able to tell if that is what it is.. or a cure for the face.. ?It would be so appreciated. Thank you.
I often get large painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> all over my face. I will admit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> I am a pimple popper, but these are too painful, and get much too irritated if I pick at it. I try applying creams, washing my face 2-3 times a day, and they dont go away. In fact, sometimes they leave red scar looking spots on my face. They are mostly on my cheeks and forehead. any help?
A bit of a background, I have keratosis pilaris <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my upper arms and I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> it can occur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the face as well, but these are not the same kind of bumps whatsoever. Other than that, I have pretty normal skin, with the occasion pimple showing up but never severe acne of any sort. I also don't think it's an allergy of any sort, since it has been happening for several years and I've changed face products and whatnot over that time.
I am getting over a cold right now, and yesterday I discovered a cluster of three, raised, skin colored <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my cheek <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> when squeezed secrete a clear liquid. Normally I would just assume they are some weird zit that would go away but just now I discovered another cluster of two underneath my nostril (same side of face) that is also showing the same symptoms. I am wondering if this is something I should be worried about, or just a coincidence.
Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> oily areas esp. under the nose or anywhere <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.
I have tiny itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> all over my face. They itch so bad. I put eczema aveeno lotion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> them, they still itch. My face used to be so clear. one or two pimples around my period. Now i can see pores on my cheeks. This definetly is affecting my self esteem as a teen. My face looks so horrible. I don't know what to do. They went away for a little bit then came right back.
HI, I have recently acquired these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> are raised like pimples, however they are not painful. Just an eye sore. They look to be filled w/ clear oil / water / liquid of some kind and are a few millimeters in diameter. No color to them like puss or a blackhead, just look like my skin tone. They best way I can describe them is as "mini-blisters". Most of them are circular, but a few on my forehead are irregular-shaped. Please Help, they are driving me nuts!
Then for a while I didn't think much of it but later on I got some other tiny ones <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my feet a couple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face, and one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my lip. At first I thought the ones <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face were a pimple or flesh colored moles but then it one of the two just grew bigger and the one on my lip appeared as a small white spot and finally I went to the dermatologist. He just told me they were warts and that they were contagious and treated them.
but now the bumps spread down my face-it's awful-exactly like everyone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> here describes! Esp. you Ray666...so I have been reading about this magic cream stuff, does it really help?
I'd like to add that recently it's been stinging/tingling/burning feeling where the thing on my lip was (what i think is a wart)...but idk if it's related.
Avoid using the cellphone in such a way <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> it rests <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> this side of the face. Also, try to avoid sleeping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> this side, as your face may be irritated by the pillow's surface. Avoid any known triggers and continue using the hydrocortisone cream. The steroid is mildly potent so this may be safer to use over the face. Just apply thinly over the area. Avoiding the triggers is the main step to prevent recurrences.
Do not scratch your face as this will spread bacteria and secondary infection will make diagnosis harder. I would use Eucerin Redness Relief cleanser to start to relieve the symptoms. Also avoid hot or spicy foods as this may make it worse. You need to see a doctor or dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment but i will offer some suggestions. It could be rosacea which is an erruption on the cheeks usually made worse by sunlight. Treatment is with long term courses of oxytetracycline.
Now I'm back in washington DC and the symptoms are coming back again, and I can even feel the small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the left side of my lip and everything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face feels itchy and raised, although not yet noticable to others since I have again (painstakingly) tried not to itch it. It's uncomfortable and keeps me from doing my work. I don't want to go back to the doctor at the university because she'll probably say it's dermatitis again.
but if I'm washing my face or putting lotion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face, will touching the wart spread it to other parts of my face? I've been really nervous about that lately. especially since these little bumps are appearing now.
So I have been using this desonide ointment for around 5 months and now when I stop using it for a period for as short as two days my face burns and gets very red and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> start to form. It has also spread to both cheeks now. I went to the doctor on the ship and he recommended using benzoyl peroxide and he gave me doxycycline. Now my dilema is I have heard that using benzoyl peroxide can make Rosacea (if that actually is what I have) worse.
A few days later, he developed hundreds of tiny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> (not itchy) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> his forehead which then spread down his nose to his cheeks. It has not spread past his cheeks. It's been about a week and they don't appear to be going away. He seems a little tired, too. Any ideas as to what may be causing this? thanks!
Most of the time baby acne will spread all over the whole body. Aspen had some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her face, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> her arms, legs, back, etc. It just depends <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the day where it will be at. Try not to worry though because it just means that she is healthy!
My girlfriend has a number of small little white spots which seem to be spreading around areas of skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the face such as eye lids, cheeks etc. These spots seem impossible to pop and don't seem to be going away. I have also now noticed that i have one on the top of my nose near my eye and I am beginning to wonder if what my girlfriend has is infectious.
For over a year I have had these strange lesions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face. They start off small and continue to get bigger. They have these little fleshy plugs in them that hurt like hell. Nothing and I mean nothing gets rid of them unless you extract every single fleshy thing and just when you think you have more comes out. They scab over and over and over. Yes I have tried to leave them alone. I've tried fungal medication antibiotics ever essential oil or otc cream you can think of.
I have the same blisters <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> akbornladay described. They form in less than an hour and start leaking out a clear fluid for 1-2 days. The fluid usually dries into a big yellow scab. They then dry up and form a normal scab and then heal without much of a scar if any. I've tried antibiotics, antiviral, steroid creams, pretty much everything the dermatologist could give me, and nothing has worked.
Secondly, now I have some very very itchy tiny red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>that</span> I haven't yet shown the doctor. I have used the Clobetsol topical cortisone ointment on it and it goes away within about 2-3 days. It comes back about one a week or two. Is it bad to use the cortisone topical so often? Is there anything else I can do to prevent it? I use Eucerin sun screen for sensitive skin (fragrance free) and it still comes back. Suggestions?
