I have had these sores on my face , neck and back (its my forhead, and jawline). They are deep (bot just a regular scabs or cuts). Its been about 2 months since I really started noticing them. I went to the doctors last week for a few items inclusing this. My doctor just knodded and never did anything or went further. I don't know if I should go back or if it has something to do with my birth control as he changed it. A little skin heal goes on but usually falls off and bleeds and goes in that cycle. They are very painful as well, not just when you touch it, or scratch it.

I don't know if it's your birth control, there is that possibility, but you might want to get that checked out because those look like bed sores. You could also have a condition that you never knew about. Allergies have been terrible this year. I know people who are sneezing and having problems with their skin that they hadn't had before. Definitely get yourself checked out.

I have that kind of problem before, but it was an allergy of jewelries. I did consulted the doctor but nothing happen then. so the next thing we did with my mom, we went to the Chinese medicine store and asked for a medicine on it, after 1 week of applying it.. my sores(so itch and painful) gone, even the scars. I was so thankful by that. but the thing here is I can't read what's the name of the Chinese medicine, its written in Chinese :-(

For some reason, the first thing I thought was Shingles. I doubt it though, I would think Shingles would be many more open sores, but I hear they're very painful and that they are sores. Anyway, it really don't sound like acne. It might be some sort of infection. You really should go back and if your doctor doesn't say anything helpful about it then ask for a second opinion, preferably from a dermatologist.

You may need to ask for a referral to a dermatologist if you do not see some improvement. The best thing I have used lately is Phisoderm. It is a salicylic acid cleanser.It seems to make everything heal up. I use a good moisturizer afterwards, though. I think I have heard that breaking out on the jawline is related to hormones, so he may be waiting to see if the change in medication helps.

if it bleeding try to long press so that it stop the bleeding side but if not try to consult the doctor.Then about birth control what type of birth control that you are using coz there are many contraindication when your taking medication without proper caution. Drink a lot of water to excrete all the toxic of your body. Then eat nutritious fruits and vegetables in order to heal the sores that you are experiencing right now.

Dear Ricki, That is not good. I think you should get checked out by a dermatologist. Something is not right.
