I get these little annoying white bumps on my face. They look like whiteheads, but aren't. Does anyone else get these and if so, what are they? They make me feel like a teenager again, with zits all over my face. The worst one, wouldn't you know it, is right on the tip of my nose. :rolleyes: I have tried getting rid of them, 'cause I thought it was a zit and ended up taking a patch of skin off my nose, so then I had a scab right there. That was real attractive, let me tell you. So, I don't do that any more, don't want a bunch of scabs on my face. I would however, like to get rid of them soon, as my oldest son is getting married and would like to look as good as possible for his wedding, you know, no 'zits'. lol

A short while back, I posted about my daughter having Keratosis Pilares (KP), which is just clogged hair folicles covered with new skin. It manifested itself with little whitish bumps on her back, arms, and legs. Her pediatrician said KP is extremely common, and there are many products to get rid of it--I think the active ingredient is lactic acid. I used a pretty popular brand of lotion that contained Alph Hydroxy Acids, and it did the trick. If you are interested, I will send you a PM letting you know what it is and where to get it.

Good luck,

Hey Whirlway,

No, can't say I have had this and I'm sorry you are dealing with it. I did a search on the board and this link about white bumps came up. It seems it more talking about calcinosis but it might help. Janey, our wizard of finding things may come up with something else.
Warm and gentle hugs,
