This sounds like the same thing that happened to me. Around the same age too. I started using Demodex. I have only been on it for a month now, and I need to order some more, but my pores are starting to look smaller and the itching on my face has gone away. The spots haven't stopped yet, but they are getting fewer and fewer.Check out the site, and read some of the people's blogs which might help you in finding what it is. Good luck!
