I have similar skin lesions mostly on my face with a few on my shoulders, and neck. I saw a dermatologist who thought they were folliculitis. I was also diagnosed with Rosecea and seborrhea dermatitis. She prescribed low dose antibiotics and metro gel. I have been dealing with this for at least 6 months and have had little success in clearing them. I have recently changed my protocol with better results. I also have some that will not heal until they are free of the offending plug. The ones on my chin need exfoliating with a glycolic product, it softens them and allows the plug to slough off. 2x per week. Then, I use benzoyl peroxide daily on my face and shoulders,neck. At night, I use my metro gel, prescription and take my antibiotic. So far things are slowly healing, but I still have a few new ones. I wonder if we get these as keratosis pillaris like many Eds and ours just get infected at the follicle?
