Looks like another case of acne agminata.  We had one recently (7th Jan 22 case 3002). 

My only reservation about this diagnosis is the patient's age, as acne agminata is usually seen in a slightly younger age group.  For that reason I would want to make sure there wasn't an infective cause (ZN, Wade-Fite etc).
