Left side close up

Its really nasty looking even make up cant hide it well and its not going away, I had this for maybe 4 weeks now. Whats worse is I already had really bad break outs on my cheeks back in 2008 when I got my period back after a year of not having a period, and since that time I just had scars to worry about on my cheeks until now! I think its PMS acne but I don't want to take birth control since most of them cause weight gain and I already feel fat always which is why I exercise all the time and try to avoid most food to not overeat since I also have a problem with binge eating at times. Also struggling with anorexia/slight bulimia for about 4-5 years.

    i break out right before my period too, definitely the horomones.. i got back on birth control after i had a talk with my doctor. i asked about the weight gain and he said its normal to gain 5-10 lbs in a YEAR span. so i wouldnt worry about it. especially if you work out all the time! :) just make sure you eat healthy and take care of yourself

    This sounds just like me I'm underweight and have struggled with eating disorders for a while, but right now i've been better im a vegetarian and been eating more and gained an average of 4 pounds but i still have not had my period for 4 months now, my acne is not as severe but it has gotten worse since my eating habits and hormones have been all messed up,so you're not the only one:).
