What are spots?
Spots and pimples are a common skin condition that will likely affect everyone at some point during their life. However, some people can be more prone to having spots appear on their skin than others and it can become a real skin concern. Spots are small growths that appear on the skin surface in a variety of different forms whether that’s as blackheads, whiteheads, papules, nodules, pustules and/or cysts. Whilst they can appear anywhere on the body they typically appear on the face, chest, shoulders and back.
