Hello...thank you for getting back with the requested necessary image for my better understanding.
This looks like a severe form of acne called - Acne.
Acne is the medical term for pimples. Pimples happen when pores get clogged with dead skin and oil, and bacteria build up. Then the skin gets inflamed and can turn red or swell.
You will need prescription medications from a dermatologist.
This is what you can do before you get an appointment -
●Wash your face no more than twice a day. Use warm – not hot – water, and do not use harsh soaps. Instead, use a gentle non-soap facial skin cleanser. Do not scrub your face, because that can make acne worse and damage the skin.
●Do not pick or squeeze pimples. This can make acne worse and damage the skin. Plus it can lead to infections.
●Avoid oil-based make-up and skin products. They can make acne worse. If you use a moisturizer for your face, a moisturizer labeled as "non-comedogenic" is often best.
At the dermatologist the treatment options would be -
1. Medicines you put directly on your skin – These can be gels, creams, or lotions. There are different types.
Retinoids – These are medicines that help keep your pores unclogged like tretinoin, Adapalene, Tazarotene. One form of adapalene gel can also be bought without a prescription. Retinoids can also help improve dark spots on the skin caused by acne.
Salicylic acid and glycolic acid – These help remove dead layers of skin. They can reduce acne by helping to unclog pores.
Antibiotics – Antibiotics reduce acne by killing the bacteria inside pimples. They also help bring down inflammation. These are Doxycycline, Clindamycin, Erythromycin, Dapsone.
Another medicine that can kill bacteria, Benzoyl peroxide, is available without a prescription.
2. Medicines you take as a pill
Antibiotics – Antibiotic pills work for the same reasons antibiotic gels or lotions work. But they tend to be stronger.
Isotretinoin pills – Isotretinoin is a retinoid that comes in pill form. It is very effective against severe acne.
The other possibility is atopic dermatitis.
