School bullies turned actress Karen David's teenage years into a living hell after she suffered an "infestation of zits".
The star of Kiefer Sutherland's new U.S. TV drama Touch was born in a small village in the Himalayan mountains in India and brought up in the U.K. and Canada.
Her unusual upbringing made her an instant target for bullies and the cruel taunts only got worse as she entered puberty.
She tells Star magazine, "I was bullied. I was different. I didn't fit in. "When I hit puberty, I had an infestation of zits (acne). It was not easy. People were mean".
David insists she has put her difficult teen years firmly behind her, but she still cringes when she recalls the hurtful nicknames she received.
She says, "I laugh about it now, but they would call me names, like Chocolate Chip Cookie!"

Acne is the worst. I had it in high school on my forehead and kids on my baseball team would call me pizza face. It bothered me but I acted like it didnt but when a girl gets bullied about her looks its way worse.She is a very pretty woman so maybe thats the karma of life repaying her for that acne

I know how u feel, all my life I been bullied because of my acne, I even have some scars from acne. From picking at them, I am still struggling with acne, but I feel like I am in a better place now. People can make fun of me, but in the end if the day, you come home to your family, so the people don't matter, after hearing your story I wanted to cheer because I wish someday I can become a success like you.
