Re: Acne on an embarrassing place!

For one thing, don't be embarrassed! :-) I used to get that, it wasnt bad or anything, but i vividly remember having to go to school etc and always feel that i was sitting on a spot! lol. Thank goodness you don't have acne on your face atm! :-)

Unfortunately i can't give a cure, as mine just vanished. If it ever came, it was just temporary. But as for yours, when you wash, make sure you don't over scrup or irritate your skin there :-) Im sure others will chime in with their miracle cures so good luck!

Yea I have it on my back and my chest too. The beach used to be my best friend. Very embarrassing. Mrs. Loc, just make sure you don't moon anyone and you should be fine.
