    I always have two or three of them sprouting out near my mouth. Is it normal to have pimples? Can I make them go away?
    Thanks, all. :)

    I have had more break outs since I hit 40 than when I was a teen. I am sure mine is from my changing hormones.I am now 47 and I know I am in perimenopause.

    Gosh! I have something new on my face every day! From covered with pimples around forehead, cheeks, mouth area, to like red bumps, little white heads. But every single day my face looks different and then by the afternoon sometimes, they have either cleared up or there's more.

    Sometimes I swear I see that butterfly rash thing too, that goes across one cheek, nose and then the other cheek.

    Glad to know about something to do with the liver, cause that has been my biggest bet, and one of the things that I am leaning more towards that could be wrong with me.

    You all sure improve the quality of my life. I started taking some more milk thistle extract, and a lot of the pimples cleared up. Thanks, guys!

    Yes, by your profile you are still quite young and your hormone levels impact pimples. Drink lots and lots of water. If they are around your mouth make sure you keep your hands away from your face and after eating always wash around your mouth even if you have to re-apply makeup. I am a 42 you male and will get them in the summer on my forhead from sweating. So when I workout I always make sure I shower right away or when I tan I make sure I shower right away because of the lotions. Nerves can also cause breakouts and so can some of the meds you are on. If they get real bad which does not sound like something you can't control with diet and drinking lots of water, see a dermatologist. A short round of antiobotics can help. I also use Cliniques men's facial soap and scrub, but men have the benefit of shaving and I think that helps by taking away the dead layers of skin that can breed bacteria and create pimples. Hope anything I rambled on about helps - bobby
