Chin acne (hard and soft plugs)

Recommended Posts

Hi, about once a week I have a pimple form on my chin. I noticed that I can actually see the plug (sometimes in the hair follicle encapsulating the hair strand). These plugs sometimes are hard and I can prick them with my finger. I can sometimes push them out with my tongue as I am doing in the picture. The plug does not seem deep, but for some reason my skin seems to be over reacting to the plug and creating lots of pain and inflammation. If the plug is soft and easily comes out it won't create an issue. Seems that the lesion only occurs when the plug is hard and gets stuck in the pore. I have A LOT of these plugs on my chin (mostly soft). Have been on Differin for almost 9 weeks now. Hopefully with continued use they will go away.

Can anyone make any suggestions? In the picture I am pushing my tongue out. If you look carefully you can actually see the plug (white dot).
