Bumps on the face, how to deal with them.
I’d like to remind everyone….please…..bumps on the face may be a sign of medical disease, and you need to make an appointment with your dermatologist or primary care doctor. On this one, I’d vote for a dermatologist, if possible. Retinol isn’t causing the warty spots, but something else is!
Here’s just a short list of things that can cause bumps on the face:
- Skin cancers
- Precancerious lesions
- Infections of all kinds
- Flat warts
- Sebaceous hyperplasia (enlargement of facial oil glands)
- Various cysts and benign tumors (not cancerous)
- Benign growths like skin tags, seborrheic keratoses, etc.
- Sun damage
And this isn’t even mentioning some of the things that are more rare. Self diagnosing bumps on the face in my experience just gets you the wrong diagnosis!
