It's painful to eat too, just opening my mouth and feeling the pimples. Then, the pain wakes me up and keep me from sleeping. I've only slept about 10 hours for the last

About Me: I am 27 yrs. old and I have had acne since high school. It was pretty severe nodular acne that has left many scars that have faded over the years.
