Why does acne spread?

Recommended Posts

I have read numerous posts by many of the members, who just like me, have their acne spread to other areas. For instance, for 3 years or so my acne used to be contained to both cheeks - and it was very rare for me to have pimples on my forehead or chin. However, within the last year I have had a constant surge of pimples on my forehead, chin & jawline as well still having them on my cheeks. Any thoughts or explanations why this is?

i dont know why. i thought it was a) the treatments you used in past killed off the spots and so they couldnt form again on that part of skin or b) just as you get older ur skins changes!

but they are just what i thought!

when i was 14 - 20 i got spots just on my forehead.

i then got them on my chin and above my lip and never get them on my forehead!

its is strange but i guess it is just one of lifes little unexplained things!

im now clear and just battling with scars so im hoping they wont come back on somewhere new like my cheeks!
