Well for about 9 years I have these bumps on my face. I have no clue what they are nor do dermatologists. I was on Accutane 11 years ago, and as a side effect these occurred. They are bumps all on my forhead, right under my nose, and on my chin. It is not acne, because you can't squeeze the knot and I have the worse time with them. People notice, kids notice, people at check out lines notice, too. One time a check out person asked me "What is on your face?" How do you respond to something that you don't know the answer to? I just took my stuff and walked awayin tears. It's one of things where where it bothers you, because you know it's there and people know it's there but do not ask about it. I have had chemical peels after chemical peels to microdermabrasion to help smooth out my skin, but it doesn't last long term. It lasts maybe a month. I'm just tired of people staring, because I know they are. It doesn't bother my husband, but I am just so insecure about this kind of thing. I just wish they knew what these bumps were and what they could do to get rid of them.....It sucks....
