Oooohhhh hun, Im so sorry. Acne can be so embarrassing. I'm 48 and am going through the same thing. All of a sudden bam, my face, chest, neck and back broke out but its like you described. Its just red, raced bumps. I have tried two different acne meds and it only seemed to make it worse. I tried the mud mask as well. I believe that mine is caused by hormone fluctuations because Im peri-menopausal. NO FUN.
My daughter used to have really bad acne when she was a teen. I took her to a dermatologist and after a few failed prescriptions, she found the right one for my daughter. It was a face wash that was to be used twice a day. Her acne cleared up with in a few weeks. She looked like a whole new person. So my suggestion is to make an apt. with a Dermatologist. I hope it clears up very soon. Then you can forget having to do mud masks. View Thread
