Getting more spots as I get older

#1 Postby mythil » Tue Sep 23, 2014 7:04 am

This is kind of annoying... I never really had that many spots when I was younger but now that I've hit thirty I'm getting lots of red blemishes on my upper arms and pretty substantial spots on my shoulders and upper back.

I've been to the doctor about it and I've done a few things though the strongest was antibiotics. Wondering if anyone has managed to shift this if they've also had it later in life?

Haven't experienced this myself....suppose it could be lots of things, but first instinct was foods. Maybe too much oils or fat in your foods?

Will check back on this one....

Well I've been told by the Doc that it's a myth that fats and so on cause spots.. Also that it's possible for adults to get acne as they get towards middle age. May have to try some teenage spot cleansing things.

Gluten and lectins from legumes cause acne on the shoulders.
