Hello! This is my first post on this website, so I apologize if this isn't posted in the right forum. I just wanted some advice on how to manage my acne. I have combination skin, so basically, my whole entire t-zone is susceptible to acne. My cheeks have never been oily, and probably the area with the most oil is my nose, and I have tons of blackheads but rarely any pimples. My forehead occasionally breaks out with tiny zits, but my real issue is my chin. Starting around January last year, I started to get a cyst on my chin, that would go away after I'd pop it, (I know this is bad), then another one might come 2-4 weeks later...now, for some reason, I have a new cyst that forms every 5-7 days. I have to pop them, or else they'll stay there, which is too embarassing for me. I have a lot of scars on my chin, but the rest of my face seems clear. How do I manage this chin acne? I use a scrub twice weekly, I eat healthy, cleanse my chin twice daily, though I cleanse every other area in my face every-other day. I also used benzyl peroxide 3-4 times on my chin, but I still get cysts. I'm also a guy, that's 16.

I recommend trying Dan's regimen. Use a gently cleanser, then use a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide on your chin area then moisturize after. Do this twice a day.

I do the same thing but I apply medication all over my face. If you can get away with just treating your chin acne, then cool.

I've been doing this routine for 7 weeks now and all my cystic acne has cleared up.

Best of luck!
