    Hi I have this but since losing weight, its been less obvious which is a good thing.

    I just use gentle products, usually Dermologica for cleansing etc. which helps to keep it at bay. On a flare up I'd use a soothing perfume free moisturiser.

    Decleor do a mask which looks like mashed weetabix which I have found calms the skin too.

    that great thanks, I do struggle with this sometimes. and knowing losing weight has helped your skin, makes me more determined.

    I have metronidazole gel from the doctors. It has worked on the spots but still get the redness. I didn't suffer with it before I was overweight so fingers crossed it will clear as the weight comes off.
