really bad acne with cold or flu
just wanted to make a quick note of how awful it is when me, a typical acne sufferer, gets a cold. not only do we suffer with the horrible effects of the cold (i havent gone out in 6 days) but the effects run much longer on our faces. i thought i had finally found a way to keep my face from breaking out real bad and my face was doing ok for a while (no huge out of control zits, just normal acne) but now that i have a cold i have broken out everyday that for sure will leave marks well past the time my cold is healed and make it harder to go out. its not like i dont take care of my skin when i am sick, it just feels like theres nothing i can do about it. the texture of my skin just feels sick, so not sure what i am going to do.
is there a medical reason as to why acne gets worse when the immune system is working on something else?
are acne sufferers more prone to colds??? i take so many vitamins for acne i would think i would be less succeptable but thats really not the case. i get colds very often
