I am in my 30s and have been dealing with persitent and aggravating skin sores for about 3 years. I never had any significant acne problems when I was younger. I was diagnosed by doctors as having imputago or filliculitis. I have been told by a dermatologist that if I stopped picking the sores, they would go away within 2 weeks. A number of times they have disappeared for up to 6 weeks, but always come back. Some of the sores have a white ulcerated look and all of them take much longer than the average acne sore to heal. As well, they tend to bleed a lot if picked and emit an odd odour. I also have noticed that sometimes I can see small red spots under my skin. At times, I feel very fatigued but am still able to play sports etc. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
