White Bumps In Chin?

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

So I have these little white thing on my chin. I know that they are common and they aren't very noticeable unless I smile or move my chin. I squeezed one once and this white pus like stuff came out. I just started accutane and noticed an increase in the amount of them. It's probably part of the initial outbreak thing but I'm just wondering, has anyone else had this problem? If so, any fixes???

Thanks in advance!

Depending on how long you've been on Accutane, you might be having or starting to have the initial breakout. I've been on Accutane but unfortunately had to get off of it, but I got a bad initial breakout and I strongly advise NOT TO PICK. Call your doctor to make sure it's a normal reaction if you're feeling uneasy about it.


My Story:
I've had mild-to-moderate adult on-set acne (inflammatory) that started creeping up on me towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've attempted, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and/or had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I've never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I can only offer my humble advice based on my own personal experiences.



Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg/day every month for 6 months

Began 2nd course of Accutane on 10/13/2015
Even though my acne came back very mildly & nowhere near as bad as it used to be, I refused any topicals or antibiotics since I've already been through the "last resort" treatment without any problems.

My targeted length of time & dosage is currently the same as the 1st round.
