I know this is VERY old but worth a shot... Did u ever figure out what it was? I think I have the same thing- my chin is very inflamed (from the ends of my mouth down to my chin) as well as under my chin (it kindda looks like I have a double chin but I know that's not it...). I noticed this after I shaved my goatee off that I had for about 3 months. It's been about 6 months since I've shaved it and it still hasn't gone down.... Oh also, the inflammation seems to be a bunch of tiny inflammations under my skin- like bumps
I ahd 5 apear on my face last year, when I went to see a dematologist we found out it was caused by a bacteria called stapphylococcus aureus and then when more appeared after a course of penicillin, mine were foirming because I have a allergy to penicillin.
I know they have said not to touch the lumps, but I found washing them in hot water and gently easing the core out of the lump was the best way to get rid of it. I gave up going to the doctors to get antibiotices as it just didn't work...hope this helps
this is weird, i have had a problem with a swollen chin/lump ever since I tried using a sonic face cleaner. to me it felt as if the bristles had punctured my chin and dirt/makeup on the bristles got under the skin. I went to the dermatologist 2x and my PCP, they seem to think it is irritation. It also gets itchy. and so does my jaw/neck area under chin. i also have itchy skin on chest/thighs and not sure if it is linked to the chin issue or otherwise dry skin. this has been on-going for 2mos. i have tried gentle cleansing/moisture prdts. cortison (script). metrogel from derm dr. it calms down and then gets worse but never goes away. I see a white mark on my chin and when swollen it feels like a hard lump under the skin about a 1/2 inch in size.
Oil of wild oregano has been very helpful to me with these type of skin infections. I live in the Tropics so these are common. Might try colloidal silver too. Until it becomes soft the doctor cannot lance it.
