- Relationship to Diabetes
- Type 3c
The last few weeks I’ve been getting what I can only describe as teenage spots on my chin and cheeks. Also cold sores which are taking much longer than usual to heal. Yesterday I was conversing with a friend who had just arrived home from UAE, her hubby works there, and had endured seven hours on a plane wearing a mask. She happened to mention she now had “plukes” ( that’s what we call them up here) and cold sores. It got me thinking, is it the masks, I get very overheated and sweaty even after a few minutes, kudos to those who have to wear them all day for work, and my face gets all greasy. As for the cold sores I suspect I’m re infecting myself by not changing my mask everytime. I’m only in a shop max 20 minutes, apparently they have a 120 minute lifespan. Anyone else had this experience or am I reverting to childhood?
