I suggest you see your primary doctor or a dermatologist and biopsy one of these lesions and then treat the rest with one of a variety of treatments. Then you can stop worrying about them! Get well soon. ...Read more

With lesions on your trunk, you'll need a physician's Rx. Start with over-the-counter topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, maybe 5% 2x/day, and make your appointment. Spironolactone or the oral contraceptive pill may be your first Rx. ...Read more

Please schedule a visit with your doctor. Best of luck. ...Read more
