Hi, I have had clear skin for most of my life with the occasional spot here and there. people have always commented on how lucky I have been in that sense. However, recently I have started to break out. But not like normal spots. They never come to a head and don't seem to have any pus either. I have never touhed them or tried to pop any of them. The spot I have been getting are red and bumpy but they don't hurt. I dont know if its cystic but hopefully not. its only occuring on my cheeks. I seem to wake up with red spots that make the area around them inflamed. I have used tea tree oil mixed with aloe vera to no avail. I have also tried using ice. Some occur a day later after electrolysis and some after a week. However, this never happned in my early tratmnets or during the consultation. after a couple of days the spot seems to go down so no bump but red mark in the area. I have never had anything like this. Nothing seems to be helping. Its like my skin is angry with me. I will insert pictures to make it more clear.
This is my right cheek: http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah23...psrh9wlu3b.jpeg
those marks are from former spots. will they fade by themselves or will electrolysis make it worse? Also what can i use? Will rosehip oil help? the pictures are not as clear as i wanted but its much worse in real life.
this is a pic of my left cheek a day or two after my elctro: http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah23...pszhicxish.jpeg
the two spots i have marked were not there before but they are not ur typical spots that happen after elctro. Like i said before they come as red bumps and seem to stay
. which makes me think it is not the electrolysis.
this is how it looks today: http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah23...psra1hrjxy.jpeg

As you can see i woke up with another one of these red monsters on my face. I am trying to figure out why and what it is. Has anyone here experinced soemthing similar? Are they papulaues or more like cysts? what shall i do about them. I have a cream called duac from my GP but i dont know if it would be safe to use them. it has been a week since my cheeks have been treated. However, i also treat my chin and neck but they don't have this problem. Have you ever treated people with acne like mine? is it anything to be concerned about? Sorry for the long post and all the questions. Any input would be appreciated. thank you
