For the freckles, there are all kinds of over the counter creams designed to make them less noticeable. Basically the creams make the freckles lighter, though I don't know how safe/good for the skin they are. I would definitely just make a trip back to your dermatologist and ask him about the freckles and the bumps. He or She'll be able to help you much better than I can.

Freckles rock. As a lifelong freckle face, and someone whose freckle face has been seen by hundreds of thousands of folks, lemme tell you that of all the comments I get about my looks, little notes about how lovley and luminous freckles are are at the top of the list.

Yes, you could bleach out your face. But since freckles are a part of your natural coloring, you'll probably look very strange, and bvleaching your skin isn't good for it, especially if you have another skin condition.

They aren't something "one has bad." They are the pattern of your own natrual melatonin. And not only are they fine, they're beautiful. Love who you are. It'll change your life and it's free. No muss, no fuss.

In terms of "bumps" that really depends on what they are.

I have those bumps on my face too. The truth is, there really isn't much you can do about it. I think it's mostly dry skin. Believe me, no one really notices them. Don't worry, they always seem worse to the person who has them, then they do to everybody else.

I've got so many freckles it's unbelievable. They used to (and sometimes still do) bother the heck out of me, but I learned to accept. Using cover-up can help... but why hide it? If you look in a lot of magazines so many models these days are freckle-faced. A lot of people also grow out of their freckles. If you get them from the sun just remember to wear SPF or sit in the shade. (You should wear SPF anyway, but there's an added reason if you really dislike them)

my freckles used to embarrass the hell out of me, until about a billion and one different guys i knew - boyfriends, friends, strangers, coworkers, teachers, etc. - all told me repeatedly that freckles are really cute and pretty. i started looking at them differently, and realized how strange i would look to myself without all those cute little bumps across my nose and cheeks. i started to get really attached to my freckles, and now i flaunt them. yay for freckle-faces!

i want a "freckle pride" bumper sticker now... *smirk*

make no mistake: i am the queen of the dorks.

i didn't really know that i had freckles until someone pointed them out to me. i just never paid attention. yes, i'm SO vain, aren't i? i don't think that there is anything wrong with them though. it's not like someone is sitting there going "oh my..look at that girl with the freckles!"

natural beauty should not be toyed with.
