How to Get Rid of Forehead Bumps

For a while, my forehead had tons of bumps. These bumps were not acne related nor the result of a new skin product, bad diet or hormones. The best way to describe them is they were small, hard and flesh-colored. For weeks I tried everything within my power to get rid of them.

Exfoliating.

Zinc pills.

Maca root powder.

Gluten-free diet.

Sugar-free diet.

Dairy-free diet.

I don’t know where they came from or why they conquered my forehead.

I just wanted them gone.

I was mentally exhausted, but I refused to give up.

Eventually, I came across a Youtube video where a girl was dealing with a similar dilemma but her forehead situation was a lot worse. I tried out her method and within 10 days.

The bumps completely disappeared.

I was in shock and estastic.

You only need one item. And it’s a shampoo called Nizoral which you can purchase at Walgreens or CVS.

My 10 Day Routine:

1. Every night wipe your face with a warm damp face cloth. Then apply a thin layer of the shampoo to just your forehead and leave it on there for 15 minutes.

2. Then wash off the shampoo with warm water, try not to get the shampoo on the rest of your face. Then wash your face with cleanser and continue your normal nighttime skin routine.

3. Repeat for 10 days, or until the bumps dry up (it took me about 6-7 days).

The key ingredient in Nizoral is ketoconazole which is an anti fungal. (Gross, I know).

Let me break it down. About a two years ago I dyed my hair black without testing the dye on my arm. Lucky me, I was allergic and got contact dermatitis all over my scalp. It hurt like Hell and I stayed home for 4 days whil I took Prednisone (and oral steroid).

Little did I know, those steroid can cause something called Pityrosporum folliculitis, a condition where the yeast gets down into hair follicles and causes an itchy acne-like eruption. According to the American Osteopathe College of Dermatology, when antibiotics suppress the bacteria the pityrosporum yeasts can over grow.

I’m not a dermatologist, nor am I for sure that this is what cause my bumps. But the bumps are gone and that’s what matters.

I hope you guys find this helpful as much as I did!
