fungal acne or closed comedones and how to get rid of them?

So recently i’ve gotten these bumps on my chin and forehead and i was scrolling online and came to find they were closed comedones. Now people say they’re very similar to fungal acne so i hope im getting this right. To describe mine is basically some skin colored bumps and some bigger red dots on chin and forehead which hurt sometimes. I’m just wondering if anyone has advice on how to get rid of them as i know plenty of people struggle with them. I’ve heard to use the Paula’s Choice but someone help me out here!

@mayalovesuu if it's fungal acne you might see some improvement using a dandruff shampoo as a face wash. I know it sounds weird but dandruff is caused by a fungus most people have. Try the Vanicream Zinc Pyrithione 2% Dandruff shampoo as cleanser maybe? It has limited ingredients and might help out. Lots of people also swear by the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant so you can incorporate that into your routine starting once or twice a week and see from there.

Thank you so much! I have started to use the dandruff shampoo and i see such an improvement! At the moment i’m not using any skincare other than that and a regular moisturizer because i just want a break from all the serums and what not for my skin but i bought the toner and will definitely use it after my acne starts to calm down

@mayalovesuu glad it worked out for you! When you decide to start using the toner, try it one to two times a week (spaced apart) to get your skin used to it.
