I started getting these bumps in my beard when I was about 17-18. They were red but didn't itch or anything but I knew they were there. When they would appear, they would just be red and swollen, then they would being leaking a clear amber colored liquid, crust up and be gone in about 2 days. They went away entirely until I was about 21 and they have come back in full force.

I get a new one about every 2 days and they only appear in my beard area (cheeks, jaw bone, neck) and every once in a while on my forehead and eyebrow area. My skin is naturally oily but never had problems with acne when I was younger. I have been treated for viral, bacterial and fungal infections but the only thing that helps is rubbing Cordran lotion when they first appear.

I did see a dermatologist who took a biopsy and declared it seborrheic dermatitis but the treatments lined out haven't helped at all so I am seeking you guy's help. I am including a picture of a typical sore.

I really need to get this taken care of because I work in a professional place and I feel other people are constantly looking at me.

Thanks for your help!
