Ask A Doctor - I am 17 years old and a female. I'm African Americ.. - DesiMD Healthcare Services


I am 17 years old and a female. I'm African American. I've been to the dermatologist before. I was told that I had melasma, blackheads (clogged pores) and very few actual acne bumps on my face. Recently I started to get horrible bumps on the right side of my neck. They're not painful unless I squeeze them (of course) - Asked by S A on 01-Nov-2015 07:08:55
