    Need Help....Acne Problems
    SusieQuesie posted:
    I have been using this site a lot so decided to sign up with some questions that I have. I have been a cosmetic sales manager for years and good skin is very important in my position. I have never had any acne in all my years but maybe a zit here or there in my teenage years. I am 30 years old and a few days ago I was diagnosed with C-DIFF and have had many problems with my intestines. I have noticed that my skin is more dry and flaky then normal and I have severe acne on both sides of my forehead and on my upper back. I need help figuring out why this is happening to me and how the acne can go away. I haven't changed my diet, I am now taking Flagyl and have no other reasons these bumps all of a sudden would appear...someone help??? I refuse to even go to work like this...any info is appreciated!!!
