Dermatologist 's  Response
Bumps are acne vulgaris. Avoid tension,take good sleep,avoid milk and milk products. Take azithromycine tab 500 mg daily morning for 1 month, then three per week (mon,tue,wen.) for 6 months.
Wash the face with cleansing face wash, like acmed face wash. Apply clindamycine gel at night daily till lesions subside.
