Just wondering why people stare at others who have acne. I was at the store today with my kids, including my young teenage son who has cystic acne and is on Accutane. When we walked by these 2 young men (20s), one of them was STARING at my son as we walked by, not taking his eyes off of him. It was SO RUDE. I wanted to say, "Excuse me, why are you staring at my son??" Or, just slap him... I can understand young kids staring at someone who has a skin disorder, but an adult in their 20s really should know better.
Surely others have experienced this.. How have you dealt with it? I told my son, next time just stare back at them and maybe they'll look away
oh, and this isn't the first time I've noticed someone staring at him. But gee, you would think people (grown-ups) would have more compassion than to just stare at a kid who is already self-conscious and embarrassed about his skin.
