    Am a 15 year old male. Recently my skin has been getting bad. It started with red patches on my face around my cheeks, which are still there. now i have noticed I have an acne scar (indent).

    I use moisturiser and eat quite healthily (do a lot of exercise too). What is going on!

    Apart of adolescences for some people, seek a dermatologist or go speak to your gp.

    Make sure you are washing your face in the morning and night with a cleanser.

    I'm 17 had really really bad acne while 14/15 went to a dermatologist got put on medication and the spots for the most part are gone (still get the odd one)

    I do still have scars though - i have creams for my scars and they are bette than they once were.
    My face is never going to be 100% but i've had to learn to accept that and carry on living!
    There's people worse than me and my advice would be to go see a dermatologist and get them nuked ASAP also do not pick at them (i'm not saying you do) i learned that the hard way and some scars are due to picking at them.

    All the best man - you'll be just fine!

    I would see a dermatologist but the waiting time is like 39 weeks on NHS. Paren'ts think its fine and I'm overworrying. what could the red cheeks for. i do have a terrible habit of picking things. The scar was not there this morning and TBH it is hard to actually see unless you look close, mum reckons its from chicken pox (only just noticed though so struggling to find truth in that)

    39 Weeks! Jesus I was lucky - pretty much got straight in there and that's on the NHS too!.

    I hope its not acne because it is hell to live through at times.

    I'm starting to think it's because I'm shaving. It's quite flaky with quite a few small strands of white. Any way to remedy this? I'm really self conscious and I really notice it

    I wouldn't know what to reccomend really but just wash your face regulary to keep it fresh.

    I'm really self conscious too, it isn't a problem in my eyes it shows you care about yourself
