Clogged Pores Or..?

03 March 2013 - 10:26 PM

Hi i was wondering if anybody can help me identify what type of acne or condition this is on the chin from this thread http://www.acne.org/...th-my-chin-pic/

I've been to the dermatologist and asked him about my chin and  told me they were clogged pores but i've had this for more than a year. He's prescribed me with some topical gels and given me a cleanser but haven't seen any improvement really. I was also on dans regimen a year ago for my other acne but im not quite sure if it helped with my chin bumps. If i were to incorporate the AHA would that help to unclog the pores on my chin? if anybody can help me i would highly appreciate it!


Clogged Chin Pores

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.
