Another option is to also treat the skin with salicylic acid at a low level to help prevent this further but I am on Retin A. I technically should not be using too many exfoliants on my face that can cause peeling and thinning of the skin. However if there is a breakout and my skin can handle it, a small dose once daily for a couple of days will not hurt. The Retin A cannot treat this on its own, it is a powerful exfoliant but it is not an anti-bacterial and as you can see, these bumps are red. That means that bacteria have entered the picture. Red bumps like those need to be treated with a product that exfoliates and kills the acne vulgaris bacteria.
So to sum up, clean your cell phones, make sure to keep treating your face with an exfoliant and an anti-bacterial agent that will help to keep the papules away. If you do these things then your cell phone acne will be sure to clear up within the month. It takes about a month or two for the scars to dissipate, use Vitamin C serum, 10% on the area to help lighten them. Should you follow these directions your skin will be looking better in no time flat.
Until Next Time~
