A rash/pimples under the skin on the forehead can be caused from perspiration (clogged pores.) It's important to cleanse your face a couple of times a day with an oil-free cleanser. There are some very good ones at your local drug store. Often athletes such as football players or hockey players can get this problem.

Also, for women, (even men) any hair that is hanging on the forehead (and if you have oily hair) can clog pours. Just cleanse the face twice daily with oil-free cleanser, and apply wash with warm water, then cool (to close the pores.) Pat dry. You can ask your pharmacist for a cream from stopping your skin from flaking. There are so many good products out on the market and some are not expensive at all.

If this does not work (I am almost sure it will) then you may have a hormone problem, but only if you have these bumps all over your face. Forehead bumps are usually clogged pores.

If you have tried all kind of acne treatments and your condition is yet around, then you have a fungus problem. The thing that worked for me was non-prescription strength nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo. Put the shampoo on your forehead and let it stay on for no more then five minutes, rinse it off and do this twice a day. Believe me, it really work. If you have a bang, cut it off.

You can get pimples and acne all over your body. Under the breasts the bra band can make it worse.
