Deep Infection On Chin, Beard, Acne?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I get infections under the skin on my chin. This happens every few months and doesn't feel like acne. Unlike normal acne, the swelling isn't usually confined. Usually the lower part of my chin on one side will swell. It is painful. I can sometimes squeeze out white stuff, but the majority of the liquid that comes out is clear. I do shave every day, and I deal with ingrown hairs. However, I don't see an ingrown hair here.

I do hot compresses, and I have a stash of doxycycline.

1) Any idea what this could be?

2) Is it okay to use doxy only when these types of things pop up? Will it not be effective eventually?
