Leg acne, wtf!

Recommended Posts

Ive had acne since I was 14 and Im now 25. Ive never had leg acne up until a few months ago I started getting zits on my thighs, groin and knees! I didnt even know you could get zits on your legs.

How is this treated?

My husband gets this also!!! we thought it was from him working in a warehouse with all the dust as it only seems to dissapear when we go away on holidays in the sun.

Has anybody else had this, really would like to know how your treating them

I get these on my legs and occasionally butt, too, I think it's not "acne" persay, but irratation caused by heat and the friction of clothes. I've also heard that these things could be folliculitis? (sp?)

I know Willow, one of our mods, has actually written several articles for publications about folliculitis - here's her profile, I'm sure she wouldn't mind if you asked her questions about it!
