New Member here and was wondering if anybody else was experiencing the same thing as me or would be kind enough to help me out. 

I have had clogged pores on my chin for more than a year with occasional pimple flair ups in the chin area making it look worse. I've been to the dermatologist 5 times and all he has given me is a glycolic foam wash prescribed me with veltin gel,  duac, aczone and epiduo but it obviously hasn't helped clear my  chin only my other acne.  On my last visit i had asked him if he could just extract/squeeze the pus out but said no. Do dermatologists do glycolic peels or any type of extractions?? or do i have to go to a different specialist for that? 



I have also used Dans regimen more than a year ago and was considering using it again and getting the AHA if that would help please let me know.

20% salicylic acid peels. Some derms do this, many more spas or estheticians do this.
