Today, I was babysitting four kids. I turned the TV on for them, and set the youngest on my lap. She started giggling and pointing at every single pimple I have, exclaiming "Boo-boo!" This went on for half an hour. FML

He is just a kid, so you can't really blame him. They have limited knowledge, and get their minds fixated on one thing. However, this FML seems to be based more on the fact that you have enough pimples for your kid to talk about for an hour. Lots of people have them, and they are a natural thing, but if they bug you a lot, you can buy some prescription pills and creams.

#21: The post doesn't specify whether OP is male or female, or for that matter whether they have makeup allergies. But using concealing makeup over acne can actually make acne worse, as it blocks the pores.


^ Agreed. Arrange the firing squad.

But on a happy note - Acne and oily skin isn't necessarily a bad thing. People with dry skin experience itchiness and discomfort and are more prone to wrinkles as they age. if your skin is oily, it will look more healthy and feel more healthy as you grow older. Nourish your sits girl

Not everyone are born with pimples on their face, so technically it is not the way she is.

But yea go to a doctor/find some pimple healing lotion/whatever if it bothers you that much. But don't scratch and pop it, it leaves marks. If it doesn't bother you as much, then let it naturally go away.

Why not distract the kid with a game or some sort of activity that isn't passively staring at a television screen? If you give them something to do, they won't resort to pimple-pointing out of boredom.

And don't blame the kid for this. If she's a toddler or younger, she can't help it. If your skin angers or embarrasses you, get it fixed. OTC or a dermatologist if those don't work.

Half an hour, #22, but it's still a good breadth of time. Kids will pay attention when they're interested. OP's face must've been fascinating to that girl. The amount of time my toddler can spend doing tasks I consider mundane is amazing.

I know two kinds of people who are brutally honest.. Drunks and kids. Don't take it too hard, OP, but if your face is broken out that badly, it may be time to see a dermatologist or order Proactive. The Proactive worked wonders for me, I highly recommend it!

30- I understand that what works for one might not work for another. But it's a place to start, and they offer a 30 day money back guarantee if it doesn't work for you. I just meant it as a place to start.. Not to work miracles.
