What in God's name do I do for non-inflamed acne? It's almost invisible,

but I can feel it beneath the skin on my chin :mad:

Will I have to get an oral antibiotic? I'm at my wits end, I never had this

before and I'm totally in the dark. :(

AHA something I should be looking into? I know nothing of those types of

things, REALLY need some help. :pray:

I'm making a dermatologist appointment on Monday(It's actually a follow

up, 'cause I see her for body acne), any specific questions I should ask?

Antibiotics won't help non-inflamed acne much, if at all. Those mainly work on inflammatory types of acne, which have great bacterial involvement.

Over the counter options would be glycolic or salicylic acid (people have various preferences between these - I found glycolic to be more effective). There are also OTC and prescription retinoids.
