Spots cane construction (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

acne

Here is my best explanation:

'spots' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'cane construction' is the subsidiary indication.

'construction' is an anagram indicator (answer constructed from certain letters).

'cane' anagrammed gives 'acne'.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for acne that I've seen before include "Facial spots", "Complaint", "Skin condition of adolescence", "Spots", "Skin disorder", "Adolescent skin disease", "Teenage spots", "Skin disease", "Spotty skin condition" and "(Inflammation causing) spots".)
