Not sure what kind of acne I have

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just recently got into skin care and have been wondering what type of acne I have so that I can figure out how to treat it. Googling isn't much help.

I get pimples almost exclusively on my chin by my chin crease. Usually above the chin crease and under my lip. They are almost always whiteheads. But it seems weird that I would only get whiteheads. They are usually painful. Occasionally I get whiteheads next to my nostril which aren't as bad. If I manage to drain the whitehead, it still says red for a week maybe. I am wondering if it's cystic acne or just normal whiteheads or other. I also have what I think are milia in the chin crease.

Thank you in advance for any advice you may give!

Hey, I am quite certain that you have hormonal acne. It's common when having acne in the chin area.
So if you cut out dairy, sugar and any hormonal food then you can prevent further outbreaks.
