    I have been on sw for 4 weeks now and I think it might be giving me spots! I have only had a couple but I never usually get any (at least not for the last 10 years or so!) at the most I might get a little pimple before I come on but these are big, sore spots! I have one at the moment on my jawline and I swear it feels as big as a boil!

    Please tell me I am not alone :eek:

    I am eating so healthily that I would expect my skin to be glowing!

    You are not alone ((hug)) its your body getting rid of all the ''''' I often find this happens when start eating better drinking more water etc. You will soon have glowing skin just stick with it :) put a drop of lavender oil on them it dries them out. Or someone said a tiny bit of sudacrem does the same but I've not tried that

    I have had a few nasty spots this last week or so and I put a bit of tooth paste on, works a treat. Kills germs and takes that horrible redness away (also it doesnt hurt as much after about half hour of the tooth paste being on). I tend to put it on at bedtime so it works over night.

    Like JackieN says its just your body getting rid of the rubbish that maybe in your system but once its out your skin will calm down :)

    add water to bicarbonate of soda and mix into a paste-really cheap and works well.

    Can thoroughly recommend Sudocrem.....put a blob on over night on a thoroughly cleansed face and it will almost be gone by the morning.!

    I haven't experienced it myself but I remember one of my sisters was complaining she started breaking out when she started on SW a few years ago, it went away after a few weeks on it's own though. She reckons it was because she started eating more veg and fresh foods instead of ready meals and also because she drank less at the weekends too and her body was getting rid of toxins.
