Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. I wanted
to talk about these tiny, annoying, pesky little bumps on your forehead. You have tried
salicylic acid. You have benzoyl peroxide. You have tried almost every single acne product
on the market and they do not seem to work. What is going on?
Pityrosporum Folliculitis or Malassezia folliculitis is caused by proliferation of a yeast within
the hair follicles. What? So, basically it is a yeast. On the surface of the skin, it
looks like it is acne except it isn’t. One distinguishable difference between acne and
this yeast is the itchiness it causes. If the bumps you’re experiencing are accompanied
by an occasional itch, chances are you may have this yeast present. However, ironically,
acne may be present, too; due to the fact that skin oiliness is one of the factors that
can lead to this condition, and also, as you know, acne. More on that later.
Surprisingly, malassezia or pityrosporum can actually be found on the skin of most adults;
the thing is an over-proliferation of this yeast is usually what causes this acne-like
breakout to occur, and like any yeast or fungus an over-proliferation occurs only when the
conditions are ripe. Then things go crazy! One more important point to make. While the
title of this video is How To Get Rid of Forehead Bumps, this condition can actually be present on
the upper back, the chest, the shoulders, and the neck. It can really be found in quite
a few different places. But I have found when we are talking about acne and when we are
talking about skin care, a lot of people have mentioned this tiny bump-like eruption on
the forehead. How did you get Pityrosporum Folliculitis?
Or how did you get Malassezia Folliculitis? Going back to what I said earlier, it can
occur from oily skin. Other factors include obesity, stress, fatigue, or pregnancy. Even
a systemic illness that can cause a weakening in your immune system or taking certain broad
spectrum antibiotics and medications can also be factors.
How can you tell if you have Pityrosporum Folliculitis? A clinical diagnosis can be
determined by either visually observing the area or microscopically having a skin biopsy
done. Sounds intense, I know. The good news is treatment is entirely way
more straight-forward. If you don’t have the time or, let’s face it, the money to
go see a doctor, determining whether or not you have acne or a yeast present can be as
simple as applying a topical treatment to treat yeast, and seeing if it works. Nizoral
AD Shampoo is a commonly used product used to treat this type of yeast. Its active ingredient
is Ketoconazole. Ketoconazole is an anti-dandruff, anti-fungal agent. Basically, it treats dandruff,
it kills yeast and kills fungus. Apply a thin layer of this product over the affected areas
twice a day – morning and night – for ten days. It is recommended that you leave
it on the skin for ten to fifteen minutes before washing off. If you notice a significant
improvement after the ten day application, more than likely an over-growth of this yeast
was present and the cause of the bumps you saw on your forehead. If you notice mild improvement,
both acne and an overgrowth of this yeast may have been present and may still be present.
After a ten day treatment of this product, try treating the remainder of the bumps you
have with acne remedies and acne solutions to see if you notice a difference. Lastly,
if you did not notice any improvement at all, more than likely an overgrowth of this yeast is
not present. It could simply be acne that is causing the bumps on your forehead. For
more information on how to treat acne and acne skin care, please check out my other
videos. Please make sure you like, comment and subscribe and please let me know what
other videos you would like to see in the future. Talk to you guys later. Bye.

  • Reply seabass November 13, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    ATTENTION people. If you have dry/sensitive skin do NOT use this as a mask more than once a day or within days in a row. I did this mask twice a day for 3 days now and it fucked up my skin. My skin is now red, irritated, dry as hell and painful.

    Yes it did help fade out the bumps, progress was seen but now my skin looks like a bread crust and its horrible. So yes this works but don't overdo it if you've got sensitive/dry skin or else this will bite you in the ass

    I'm helping my skin to heal now from this abuse but once It's back to normal and not feeling like dry sandpaper and lookin like red tomato. I'll try and use this mask once or twice a week and see how that works

    This specific pearly penile papules treatment “fetching gomgom site” (Google it) demonstrates impressive results. No headache at all in the treatment and the outcomes are remarkable. I was concerned then because my doctor said the papules can`t be removed. This remedy has just provided him evidence of my condition’s actual status.

    I`m quite impressed with this particular pearly penile papules procedure “fetching gomgom site” (Google it). No trouble in any way in the treatment and the final results are awesome. I was worried then because my physician claimed the papules can`t be extracted. This treatment has just given him evidence of my condition’s real standing.

  • Reply Qui Jan December 31, 2017 at 3:37 pm

    Hi all, this is my first comment. I was compelled to write in my results because I recently developed these tiny, pimple-like bumps on my forehead and found something that worked for me. I look back in my life and realize I have had several episodes of forehead bumps that simply disappeared after several days/weeks, which is why I never gave them too much thought. A little about me: Latino, male, 45 yrs old, no health issues, within my BMI, decent diet, non-smoker, no drugs, no alcohol. Just a couple weeks I got an episode so I took to the Internet to find out what was going on. I found this and other videos, which got me thinking on the underlying cause and possible remedies. I began using clean and clear daily wash and that helped somewhat; the bumps didn't completely go away but it was a slight improvement. I then thought well maybe these are not pimples but a fungus. So I happen to have a small tube of Lotrimin and Tinactin creams. After using the cleanser I used a nickel size drop of Lotrimin cream (active ingredient: butenafine hydrochloride %) and used my two index fingers to spread it all over my forehead. I left it on all night and in the morning there was a marked improvement. The following day, outta the blue, I decided to use the Tinactin cream (active ingredient: Tolnaftate 1%). I did the same routine and got even better results.I experimented with time duration and the amount of cream but I have experienced the best results when I leave the Tinactin overnight, after using the cleanser. No need to use more than a nickel-size drop. In the morning, I use the cleanser to wash my forehead and go about my day. I really hope this helps others. This issue caused me to become embarrassed, self-conscious, and shy. Best of luck to all.

    Hi, I've had this problem for years and i've decided to give nizoral a shot. Unfortunately I don't know if the nizoral that I have access to is the same one that people have been reporting success with on the internet. The only one available in my country(New Zealand) is 2%(would this mean leaving it on for a shorter period of time because of higher ket content?), comes in a red box and is called anti dandruff treatment as opposed to shampoo. Would be great if you(or anyone else) could help me find out if it's different and whether or not it would be safe to use it if it is.
