| | Large, Red and Fluid/Puss filled spots
I'm 18 years old and male from the UK.
I tend to get large, red spots on my cheeks and chin area surrounding my mouth. They look very unattractive and effect my confidence.
They mostly come up as whiteheads - A quick squeeze and they go away after a day or two - however sometimes I get ones that feel very deep and simply come up as red lumps, like today.
All of my spots seem to be filled with puss and a watery like fluid.
I do seem to have a constant lump on my jaw line too, which again was filled with fluid. I think this is different and may be a ingrown hair or of like.
I attach a photo which will hopefully show the extent of my problem.
One of the biggest spots/lumps today I could feel starting to grow on Friday!
I have even resorted to wearing make up to attempt to cover this all up. It looks very unprofessional in my line of work and it effects my confidence when trying to meet new people.
I am finding myself becoming more obsessed with the mirror than ever before!
Any advice much appreciated. What can I do about this? Is there something wrong?
I've not seen anyone else my age with massive spots like this. And mine always seem to be around my mouth area - never on my forehead like most. I also get spots on my neck, but nothing like this!
I alternate between two Clean and Clear face scrubs, but they don't seem to do much.
I have constant periods of these spots. Two days ago they went, but once again they are back!
The photos don't really show the problem fully, but I am sure you get the idea.
