I can send a picture i believe would be better

Hello from JustAnswer.
Yes, it would be better.
Could you attach a picture?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
I asked for a picture and have not heard back.
Small white bumps are more common with acne than an allergy, but reviewing a picture would be better.
It also would be reasonable to try a medicine that is better against acne, such as benzoyl peroxide gel, to see if it is more effective than what has been tried thus far.

I cant attach.. Says error
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
I am sorry that there was technical difficulties in attaching a picture, but it was successful this time.
The appearance on this image is consistent with acne, so if your skin looks similar, it would be appropriate to use products for acne. The benzoyl peroxide gel that I noted above would be an appropriate first step. Another common interventions would be Retin-A. There are some countries in which Retin-A is only available by prescription, and the best over the counter product that is similar would be retinol.
