Call them what you will, they are still the worst thing that can happen to a teenages out looking for a partner. Of course, I being me am afflicted with them.

    lol harry

    no seriously, tea tree oil is really good, i use that. alternatively, go on the pill, also pretty good <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Right GFM...great suggestion...I mean, aside from my distinct lack of sex life, I also happen to be a guy.

    I assume you already knew that though, so I'll put your post down to sarcasm. Hmmm...wish i'd thought of that earlier.

    OR go to your GP and ask for something, it may seem embaressing but it aint, sometimes this is serious, kids have killed emselves over spots so the Doc's dont treat it as a joke. And the stuff they give u is rock solid

    So make haste!!

    Thanx monkey_boy. I don't think i'll commmit suicide over them - although i can understand why ppl would.

    i've got a gf, so it don't matter too much newa <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif">. But they do annoy me.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yeah i know, they annoy us all, and i weren't saying that u were gonna top yourself over em. Bbut my point was that it means that docs do take it seriously cos for ages i wouldn't ses my gp cos i thought it'd be wasting her time but it aint, and now i'm clear as a bell

    splendiferous stuff <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    er...because i'm worth it...*ahem*

    turtle, youd better not go on the pill and take antibiotics from the doc too, or it wont work and you'll end up getting pregnant!!

    (yes i do know you're male btw <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; )

    Everyone says tea tree oil is good but it doesnt do anything when i get spots! I was going to recommend this thing thats really good from Superdrug that I use all the time but you don't have Superdrug in Switzerland do you ?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    well elisa, that because you dont beleive.

    Before u put that on you've got to have the star of the devil painted on your chest in rats blood before j9's wacky solutions work.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    ROFLOL Harry. Yeah, but I'll try it newa. I'm getting a bit desperate - then I'll go to the doctor and see him for the first time in three years, then I'll get someone to get that thing from superdrug(whatever it may be)

    Tea-tree oil is a scientifically proven anti-bacterial agent and is also probably the only anti-viral for many viruses.

    Turtle, surely you know about the beneficial properties of tea-tree oil, coming from Oz?

    Ahh...yes, so long as there are no follow up questions. <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    I've heard a bit about it, but never really used it. I guess when the shops re-open I'll get some, give it a try.
