I have papules and whiteheads...what should I do about them?

Recommended Posts

All of a sudden, I am getting whiteheads and papules along my jawline. I have been breaking out for about two weeks and I haven't changed anything in my routine for about 5 or 6 months. What should I do about it? I read somewhere that acne along the jawline (for women) is hormonal and is caused by an androgen imbalance. I don't understand why my hormones would just now be going out of whack, since I'm 18 and I've already gone through puberty (and the only acne I really had when I started getting it was a papule or two along the jawline, but I always had at least one, but for about 2 years I broke out with pustules more often than anything else)

Anyway, I'm not sure what I should do about it. Any tips would be helpful :)
