    Suggest treatment for small bumps all over the face

Posted on Mon, 17 Jul 2017 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hello! I am a 57 year old female. I have diabetes that I control with diet. I also take medications for pain control, depression, anxiety and acid reflux. In the past few months I have been getting small bumps growing all over my face. The larger ones are 2-3mm. They all start out small but then keep growing. I now even have some by my eyes. They don't itch or bother me at all. Last time I counted there were over 60 of them. Every day I find more. What in the world can this be? Should I go see a dermatologist? Thank you for your time.
