    Suggest treatment for adult acne

Posted on Tue, 24 Feb 2015 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: I have never had acne but since I've turned 36 I started getting very small flesh colored "pimples" filled with clear puss when popped. I will get between 10-30 at a time, they will eventually go away and then I will get the back a few weeks/month later. By the time I get scheduled in to see a doctor, they are healed... I'm very frustrated! Please help.
