I've always suffered with acne skin but it had been 'OK' for a couple of years. I still had spots but just accepted that's how it would be as i didn't want to take antibiotics (they'd made me ill in the past) - so i just lived with it. However, i don't know what happened but by the end of October 2008 my skin had flared up horrendously and this picture shows how bad it got. I had spots all over my neck as well, something i hadn't experienced before. At this point in time i hadn't discoverd Acne.org and it seemed no-one could help me.
