Though of couse i want my spots to go, i am very prone to huge breakouts on my face and back that last around a week. I'm finally going to the doctors about it but i'm worried that by then most of the spots will have died down. It's mainly about self-esteem. I never feel confident any more. I'm 14 and i have a friend who takes medication. Is this a good idea? I hate going out without make up on and wearing lots of it just makes my spots worse so i don't know what to do... can anyone help...?

    Hi I agbree with Trudy - seek medical help for your acne,

    Whatever you do and however tempted you are do not burst your spots.   I say this from experience as I had acne as a youngster and I did pop mine and ended up with lifelong scarring.   Please never do that.   I wish all the treatments available now were open to me then and I wouldn't have ended up with acne scars.

    Also never listen if anyone tells you it is because you are dirty or you eat the wrong things coz it is nothing to do with it.  Acne is a skin disease and is caused by over production of oil from your sebacious glands.   Please seek immediate treatment,  x
