White Bumps on Shoulders After Acne Treatment
Dear Ted, I hope this email finds you well. It's odd for me to share this problem that I have but I believe I tried anything I can think of so I guess it can't hurt sharing it:
When I was young I suffered from acne on my face which also started spreading to my back. After many different ointments and topical remedies that two dermatologist gave me, I went to see a different dermatologist which gave me some sort of pill that took the acne away (sorry for not remembering the name, I just remember my lips were cracking-dry). At the end of the acne "aftermath" my face, which was the most prone to acne has no tracing of acne however, my back has white raised bumps on the shoulders.
I went to numerous dermatologists and even cosmetic-plastic doctors and each says something different about it; they relate it to acne (without even telling them my history) some say it's hypotrophic scars some say they are keloids. I did micro-dermabration, glycolic acid and I also tried skin needeling and even started fraxel but stopped because I don't have this kind of money to do the treatment (the Dr. says he'll do a small part for small amount of money, I had to try).
The obvious question that everyone kept asking me is "why didn't you ask help when you were young?" the truth is that I did, those two doctors mentioned above and above all the acne on my back was never that severe. I had only occasional pimples. It seems that they showed after but not sure the true cause of it, I can't even say that it's acne related... I admit that it doesn't hurt but does interfere with my daily life especially mentally, I am not depressed and many said that it's nothing but the fact is that it bother me and I want to feel better with myself and this is why I am trying to "fix" it, the actual fact that I'm trying already makes me feel good, plus I have nothing to lose.
Thank you in advance for any input!
