Spotty teenager Sam Cummings has been nicknamed Craphead Slaphead because his acne spells out the word A-R-S-E.
The unfortunate 16-year-old, from Berkshire, says he has suffered from the spotty skin condition for years and has always had to put up with remarks about his blemishes from cruel classmates.
But things took a turn for the worse for the Titherton Secondary schoolboy when he woke up one morning last week and found his out of control zits had merged - and formed the word arse.
He said: “I’ve always had bad skin and didn’t think things could get any worse, but obviously I was wrong. I was horrified when I walked into the bathroom the other day and looked in the mirror.
“I literally did a double-take when I noticed my spots formed a-r-s-e and I tried everything to get them off.”
But sadly for Sam, his attempts to squeeze his spots into submission and cover them with his mum’s concealer were in vain.
