Skin: Could it be allergic, infectious? If it's not pimples, I don't have enough to go on to help. Rashes are difficult, without seeing them. For oily skin, a mild sensitive skin soap, washing several times a day, should help.

Sebaceous hyperplasi: Sounds like sebaceous hyperplasia-but it's best to see a dermatologist to exclude basal cell carcinoma. Treatments include curettage, excision, retinoids,, electrodessication, liquid nitrogen, chemical peels and more
