Itchy Chin Acne?

Recommended Posts

Hello, im a 21 year old male. About 9 months ago my chin got a pink spot on it the size of a quarter. It itches most of the time. I have been to the dermatologist and she said it was acne but I don't think so. There is rarely pimples in this spot. I have been on doxycyline for 4 months and tried differin without any success. I have tried Dans Regimen for about a month and it clears up pimples and stuff but no change to this spot, also tried hydrocortazone and that helps a little but does not heal it. I have ruled out EVERYTHING, like oils, foods, pillow, shaving... No facial hair grows on this spot either. I read another post that said if it itches it must be a infection of some kind. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks

O yeah I almost forgot. I don't really have acne bad anywhere on my face. Never have. Just the occasional pimples and stuff which aren't as bad sense I stopped drinking pop 5 months ago. Another reason I don't think this is acne.

might be eczema.

did your derm mention this?

what is the texture of the spot? is it raised, or flush with the skin?

I would have to say flush. my derm is a quack doctor. she looked at it for 2 second and told me thats its acne, im like i dont think so. Then she goes well what do u think it is? I felt like saying how should I know I never went to college for this? Then every time I go in, she says its getting better... yeah bs she just wants more of my money. I have pics from 9 months ago and its the same. heres a couple pics.

thanks for any advise!

definitely a cyst or nodule. i get those all the time but yours might be a sebaceous cyst that may need operating on could ask derm for a cortisone shot to try to deflate it a bit

I have been reading up a little. I think it may be Folliculitis. Either Barber's itch or Tinea barbae. I do recall shaving with my razor w/o showering or shaving cream about the time i started I think. And if I pull the skin apart, i can see tiny white dots. It matches with the description of one of these. So either bacteria or fungus. Im going to the doctor Tuesday. Hopfully I can convince him and he gives me something to try. I just can't see the cyst or nodule because there is no bumps under the skin.
