Patient Comments: Acne (Pimples) - Similar Skin Conditions

Have you ever had a skin condition that mimicked acne? If so, what was the diagnosis?

Comment from: addiane, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: February 14

Every six weeks I start noticing red bumps with a round white center and sometimes a hair. They are very deep usually and I get them primarily on my face, back and upper arms. After 7 to 10 days they fade.
