In the last 10 years or so these spots have spread to the back of my neck and shoulders and part way down my back. I think that stress can make them worse. I have tried various lotions and potions and taken echinacea. Two years ago my doctor prescribed a month long course of antibiotics (I think she said it was for acne). I didn’t collect the antibiotics from the pharmacy, because a friend told me that they can make one feel very low, and at that time I was not feeling on top of the world. Can you tell me of anything that can help me to get rid of these annoying and unsightly spots, please?
