What treatment can be done for the pimples on my face which are itching ?

Hello, I am 33 living in Toronto (windy weather). I am very much into work out. I had occasional pimples before in my 20s, always controled with long term antiobiotics. I stopped it since 5 years ago. It was good so far exept for Sept every year which I though it is weather allergy . Since 10 days ago I saw some small things on my forehead. Then under my lips area, above my chin (not the lip). They began spreading and became more and more spots and almost my whole left side of the face . Then my neck. They could be hardly seen by anybody unless I asked them to pay attention. Seemed to me they were not black head and are white. Now they are spreading to my right side. Each of them later tends to become a pimple. Appreciate your reply. P.S. Skin medication the past 7 - 10 days: 1) I trie benzoyl Peroxide for 2 days and it made it drier. Not much change noticed which is odd to me cause it usually destroyes pimples. 2) I began using Neo Strata day creame and it brought it back to a healthier skin, but those pimple like small spots still continued to spread. 3) I tried a lot of hand made masks (Yogurt mask + Pure Alo Vera Gel + Orange pulps) and it really got better, gave me a healthier skin, but spots still spreading. 4) Went to family doctor on Sat and a referral fax is sent to Allergy Doctor for a test but it is for June. 5) Yesterday I tried Elidel 1% Creame, but not much change. 6) Last night tried Hydrocortizol cream which is the strongest and I felt my face was toooooo itchy during the whole night and in the morning. Not much change today morning. 7) Now I am wearing Differin since it cools down my face. I tried it today morning, but after 3 hours, it is tending to become itchy again. *** Plz note I hate Antiabiotics since I used it for long years in my 20s and it brough me a lot of side effects. I am really not eager to back to it.

Hello
From your description looks like you are developing grade I acne of severe intensity.
I wld suggest you visit a Dermatologist asap. Isotretinoin should work wonders. In case your doc doesn't start it right away, enquire about it. If these are white heads then only that medicine will prevent your face from scarring. It's not the time to think abt the cause. Leave that for your doc.

Hello,
I would like to suggest you that it may due to windy weather. As your skin is too sensitive, you should take extra care. Wash your face with plain water immediately when you return back home. I m a Homeopathic doctor and would suggest you take Causticum 200 three times a day for a week and wash your face with plain water. you may contact me at drritu4179@gmail.com

Thanks

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?
