Having chronic acne, blackheads, white bumps under skin, inflammation with pus discharge. Solution?

Hi. I have a question regarding the skin on my face. I am prone to acne(blackheads & combination). For the last couple of years i have been having white bumps under my skin in the cheek, eyebrow, and lower lip areas. There is no pain unless it becomes inflamed, which occasionally occurs. When squeezed a white stringy substance is discharged. If so, could you please explain to me what this condition is and a possible solution? Thank you! -I m 21, male, medium skin tone

Thanks for writing to us.
The appearance of recurrent white heads with discharge on infection is likely to be due to prominent sebaceous glands. Some skin types have a genetically higher propensity to get such skin marks. Cleansing your skin more frequently will help you.
