In brief: Sounds like

"adult acne".
.... not an uncommon skin disorder its distribution is more widespread...the treatment options are many. In women,hormonal studies are probably indicated (for example Polycystic ovary Syndrome patients have a higher incidence of adult acneiform skin lesions) Hope this helps! Dr
