If you are talking about small white bumps I have them on my jaw too. Mine are clogged pores. I'm not sure of the official term... maybe whiteheads or milia.
Mine have not responded to glycolic acid. I used 5% glycolic acid lotion for about 6 months with no luck. I had to stop using it because it was too much for my sensitive skin. I also get 60% or 70% glycolic acid peels at my dermatologists once a month. At best the peels get rid of one or two of the bumps.
I have been using Kose Sekkesei white powder wash for 2 weeks now and that seems to be helping with the bumps but it is too soon to tell if it will really work. I will let you know if it is successfull.

This one is for sensitive skin specifically,
Cellular Skin Rx Age-Limit Advanced Refinishing serum. I've been using it for awhile. Much better than the Alpha Hydrox I did use which stung like the dickens. Here's what it says about it on the EDS shopping site:

New Age-Limit Advanced Refinishing Serum combines Arginine, a naturally-derived amino acid, with Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid to achieve the maximum benefits of glycolic acid treatments without painful irritation. The combination of arginine and glycolic acid prolongs and controls the delivery of the glycolic acid into the skin over a period of eight to sixteen minutes. This controlled delivery avoids the extreme spike of irritation that usually occurs when uncontrolled glycolic acids are applied to the skin. The 10% concentration achieved at a pH of 3.5 achieves the standard set by the FDA for safe and efficient AHA home use. This serum is perfect for all complexions including those that have been previously unable to tolerate AHAs.

Thanks for this rec. I'm putting it down as a possible for my next order.

betterat40 I looked at the Refinishing serum on EDS, it sounds like a great product. I am almost tempted to try this but the last time I used AHAs my skin not only got irritated but my acne got worse. I think this was because I was overdoing the exfoliation and wonder if I would have the same reaction to the Cellular Skin product. My guess would be that if I can use a AHA without irritation it would not cause breakouts. However, since I am just now starting to get my acne back under control (I stopped using benzoyl peroxide a few months ago and went back on it because my skin was breaking out so bad) I don't want to take any chances and add a new active.
Thanks for the suggestion though. If I do decide to use AHAs again I will definetly try the Cellular Skin product!
