Is this cystic acne?

This is a painful bump on my chin and it seems to be under the chin. Does anyone know what it would be categorized as? I'm trying to find the right treatment for it! Thanks very much!

Yes that looks like cystic acne to me, your best bet is to go to the derm and get a cortisone shot to avoid scarring.

Before getting involved with a derm, try applying a hot compress (a washcloth soaked in hot water) a few nights in a row, followed by tea tree oil. A much cheaper and, in my experience, just as effective treatment.
