Acne: Its hard to say since we don't know anything about you and you didn't post a picture. I doubt you are 46, and have no idea of your gender, skin type or medical history or medications. Having said that, be sure you are dealing with Acne or comedones first. Your description is not suggestive of acne. It may be hyperkeratosis.
