Thanks everyone for the responses- they have helped me feel a little better about this. At least I know my son isn't the only person who gets stared at! LOL
Sorry I haven't replied until now. Haven't been on the forums much lately. My son is doing better, he is now in month 4 and his face is way better, pretty much almost all clear. It's the body acne that is taking forever to heal. But he's not exactly halfway through his treatment yet, so I'm trying to be patient.
Some of your responses were very amusing to me- not making fun of anybody, but again, it was nice to see that other people deal with rude, or emotionally challenged people in public. Also, my son is always thinking people are staring at him- so maybe he's paranoid? LOL . But that day, I did actually witness that guy staring at him, and like some of you have said, it might have been for a different reason (kinda doubt it though). Maybe he was a pedophile? Or maybe he recognized him? In any event, I didn't like it and it made us both very uncomfortable. But yes, I know that other people, even beautiful, acne-free people get ignored or treated badly by strangers.
thanks again guys, and take care! And anyone else who might have a humorous (or not) anecdote to share about being stared at, please do!
