Hi all, could someone please give me some advice on how to deal with the large white smelly spots that keep appearing. They seem to be getting worse and there is a very large one which will not go has been there for over a year

Thanks for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your trouble. I would strongly suggest that you see a Dermatologist or GP with experience in Dermatology. From your description I wonder if you have cysts or perhaps nodulocystic acne which will probably do well with tablet treatments, perhaps even isotretinoin- a strong acne treatment that should clear these up. I suspect that over the counter pharmacy treatments will not do the trick for you.

With best wishes
