Hello, So for quite some time...
Hello,
So for quite some time I've had these bumps on the side of my face near my hairline by the ears and they're not simples or anything. It's just skin but they've been there so long and I don't know how to get rid of it.

I was able to post two pictures on photoshop. It may or may not be hard to see but you will see these bumps on my face. Some have white heads but aren't pimples and others are just my skin being bumpy.

Thank you for the information and photos provided.

These are small epidermal cysts , milia , some are white heads.
The best way to remove them is by getting a steam done on the face once a week and removing them with a comdeone extraction instrument at the salon or at the dermatologists clinic.

The other option is to get a salicylic acid based face was like a neutrogena deep pore cleanser to cleanse the area .

Treat the dandruff on the scalp with Sebamed Anti dandruff shampoo.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
