    anyone else got this problem?
    i haven't worn my glasses in about 3 weeks. i have a permanent red mark across my nose where they usually sit. i'm waiting for a new pair of glasses at the moment (prescription changed slightly). my old glasses gave me acne across my whole nose. could it be scarring? i didn't itch or scratch it and used some tea-tree spot wand thing from boots to get rid of it over the course of 3 weeks.
    i had the marks before but they went away after 3 months of not wearing my glasses over the summer hols.
    should i just speak to a dermatologist instead of asking TSR? probably. but i'm gonna ask here anyway.

    thanks a bunch lads

    I think you should talk to your dermatologist. Glasses should not leave acne marks if they are clean. Maybe it is sort of allergy to your own sweat, in that case anti-histamine should help. Still, the best thing to do is to ask your dermatologist.

    Speaking as a sufferer of chronic acne since age 14, what you describe is most likely residual hyperpigmentation—and yes, it really does take months to fade.
