Acne under chin and neck area only?
I am 29 years old and about a year ago I started getting tiny bumps under my chin and around upper neck area, if I squeeze these they become inflamed, red and sore. I have read that acne in this are could be hormonal. I do notice that it is worse when i ovulate. I am not on the pill, i eat a very healthy diet, i take supplements such as maca, barley grass extract, and a magnesium powder, none of these make the condition better or worse. I do sweat a lot but i always have as I am a personal trainer. I cant figure out why it has all of a sudden become a problem! I have tried numerous lotions but nothing works. Please help!!

This sounds like hormonal acne and going on an antiandrogen contraceptive pill such as Yasmin or Dianette (Diane35 in the USA) will help so talk this over with your doctor. It will also be helpful to use a prescription acne lotion called Differin which is very effective at clearing acne and reducing redness and inflammation. Do not squeeze acne spots as this will spread the bacteria and lead to further breakouts. Loiloi xx
