I have really bad acne on my forehead, and it's spreading to my cheeks and on my eyes ? Is that even possible to be on the eyes ? How can I treat this

Ignore all "pop" advice and "tips". Acne is unrelated to lifestyle or hygiene and there's no clear relationship to diet. It is not curable but eventually remits on its own for reasons no one understands. ...Read more
