My story



When I hit my 30s I hit my teenage acne stage.  I was lucky enough to not suffer with them at school unlike my brother but boy am I paying for it now.  I get these cysts under my skin that develop in hours to hard lumps which are painful and throb yet there is no head.  If I leave them they stick around for ages and no make up covers them up.  If I try and dispatch them I'm left with an angry scabby red mark on my face that is frankly embarrassing.  I've tried loads of creams and was on tetracycline from the doctors that worked but once you come off them the problem starts again.  The cream they prescribed was useless as it dried all my skin up and left sore patches everywhere.  I try and look on the bright side and think they are only spots but when you sit at work and all those around you don't get any yet you are sitting there trying to hide the fact that you have a huge crater on your chin that has its own heartbeat its hard.
