I’m a late 20s female and have never really got a lot of spots before in my face. But suddenly I’ve got a load of spots all over my face, I know I’m due to start my period soon but this never happens. Why oh why is this happening! Also any tips/advice as to how to prevent or stop them looking so horrible!!

Have you been drinking more coffee? Could you have developed an intolerance to new foods?

No I don’t drink coffee anyway. I haven’t really changed anything in my diet so I can’t make a connection with food.

More tired or stressed than usual?

If it carries on I recommend a prescribed cream called Duac, it works wonders, GP says to use for a few weeks then have a break. It contains an antibiotic and antiseptic I think.

I’m the same and never had spots as a teenager but now in my early 30s I get them every month before my period. Doctor said it’s fairly common for adults to start getting hormonal acne but he didn’t know why :-/

Maybe it could be hormones then as I am due to start my period. Il keep an eye.

Thanks for the recommendation if it does continue il ask my gp
