My 6 month has little pimples on her forehead?

Needs a look: Do have it seen at the next checkup. Not seen in babies. If it looks like pustules, needs immediate check. Just raised and non tender, if not red and angry looking you can wait. ...Read more

No longer cystic: The acne is not cystic at this time but still needs treatment. See your medspa doctor to review the options to get your skin clear. Laser skin care reduces the size of the oil glands (Cool Breeze) and cleans your pores (Isolaz). This will help you prevent scarring and discoloration. She will also show you products to use between visits (salicylic acid wash, toner, oil free moisturizer). ...Read more

See answer below: Your description is consistent with "Cellulitis" which occurs when bacteria, most commonly streptococcus and staphylococcus, enter through a crack or break in your skin.

Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more

Stay the course: I'd do it. If you need isotretinoin, the situation is serious. You are an adult now and acne is a huge personal and professional liability. Whoever is monitoring your treatment will advise you on dose. ...Read more

Mild acne: This will probably respond well to topical benzoyl peroxide. It takes a little time. If this isn't enough, your physician may try topical Clindamycin or something similar. Your eating and exercise habits have little to do with acne, contrary to what you may have been told. Good luck. ...Read more

There is a small bump near my hair, on my forehead. It has been there for about 4 months. Can a pimple last that long? And it hurts when I press it.

There is a small bump near my hair, on my forehead. It has been there for about 4 months. Can a pimple last that long? And it hurts when I press it.

Pimple??: Does it look like a pimple? It would be unusual for a pimple to stay for four months and not change in some way, either by growing, or bursting and draining, or by gaining some more pimples nearby. This should be looked at more formally by a doctor to make sure. ...Read more
