How do you manage to get a spot at nearly 43?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon3372, Feb 16, 2011.

  1. I have never had spots!
    I now have one, which seems to have appeared within the space of me having a shower and putting on my PJs.
    A big ***** thing on my right cheek.
    How dare it?
    Am I having a hormonal thing? Where has it come from?
    I don't have greasy skin - I have dry skin. How does a spot occur on dry skin?
    And how do I now get rid of this montrosity?

  2. My skin is dry. I never got spots.
    Until I was pregnant. [​IMG]
  3. I am very definitely not pregnant.
    Unless I am a reincarnation of Mary.

    At 48 my skin has never been without spots!
  5. I am not 48, but I do get spots... If you were in this country I would say get some oxy on the spot - that speeds up getting rid of the spot
  6. Mine started at 41ish, it's the beginning of the menopause, and looking back, I remember my mum being the same. Now 44 and they're more sporadic. Doc reckons it's like being a teenager with raging hormones!

    Am 41. Never had spots until this time last year when GP gave me meds to help make sure I was ovulating. Even though I've only actually taken three months' worth at most cos I was actually ovulating without them - I've had spotty cheeks ever since. And they got worse since being pregnant!
  8. Sure it's not a bite? I have a corker slap in the middle of my cheek, that I'm pretty sure came from a mini-beast brought in by one of my lovely Group 2, bless 'em.

    I still get the occasional one on my chin or cheeks and I'm 57. They usually occur when I'm particularly run-down. I put a Manuka honey ointment on them (when in the house only, as it's a bit sticky!) and they're gone within a few days.
