Get consult: No acne variant is permanent. I'd get with a dermatologist and get the exact name. I've seen adenoma sebaceum of tuberous sclerosis mistaken for acne by a group of physicians who should have known better. There are a host of other skin diseases as well -- even after 3 decades doing medicine, i'm still learning new ones.
