You are right. You may be having syringoma. It is a skin tumor
of of sweat glands ducts. Exact cause is not known. There are papular lesions on the face in bunch.they are skin colored and asymptomatic. They are mostly occur below the eyes on the face. The disease is benign.
Best treatment is electrocautery or laser therapy
. There may be mild scars after healing. And the lesions might relapse. The treatment may be done again similarly.
However, in some patients retinoic acid
gel or adapalene
gel may improve the lesions,but takes long time..as you are using.
So, consult dermatologist
and have proper treatment.
I hope you got my answer.
