Embarrassing - spots (but not) Watch

    Anon/delete.

    Lately I've been getting lots of "spots" like on my forehead. They are like large hard lumps that appear and they're often red and sore. Sometimes when i get them in other places (like on the side of my head) they're not noticable but most of them appear on my forehead... they are blindingly obvious, especially if I knock them whilst drying my hair they might bleed and then they "bruise" and then they'll eventually go.

    They don't get a head on them/have pus etc, they just literally appear as hard lumps and so on. And they're not obvious :rolleyes: ...they're REALLY obvious. And it's not very nice to look at (for me to see) and I'm pretty sure it's not helping me in the 'getting a girl' department!

    Anybody else got a problem like this and what they do about it?

    I've been getting a lot on my cheeks lately, even though I've rarely ever had them there before. Usually when I got spots it'd always be around my chin/nose. Sucks

    Don't worry about them. They should go eventually. I personally had a bad time with spots when i was between 13-14. But thats just to do with hormone changes. Also. Nowdays i usually get spots on the "guttering" on my chin (bit between your bottom lip and chin), whereas i used to get them all over my forehead like you have mentioned.

    TL;DR Don't worry about them!

    Sounds like acne if they're not coming to a head - might mean they're deeper under the skin. Like somebody else suggested, see if you can get prescribed some form of antibiotic cream or tablets
