well they do recommend toothpaste for large spots, I will admit to having tried it, and it did work!

Try putting a few drops of tea tree oil in the bath with you, it's an antiseptic, works wonders for me!

Do you eat well? Fresh green vegetables and carrots etc?

Improve what you eat if you don't eat well. You could also try taking a Vitamin A supplement - eaten with some fat as it's a fat soluble vitamin.

The best topical treatment I've found for large spots is Quinoderm - available from pharmacies. Don't know if it's suitable if you're bfeeding, though.
