I have two patches of itchy acne on each side of my chin. I was wondering if anyone also had this? There are tiny bumps with a few scattered whiteheads in these patches, and the whole general area is red. I'm currently on Doxycycline and no topical ointment.

I had something similar on my chest, and my derm told me it wasn't acne, but it was dermatitis...some kind of hair follicle infection. He prescribed me a hydrocortizone cream and now the rash thing is gone. So, it might be a rash. Ask your doctor.

I suggest to even if you have acne or dermatitis that you should wash it with Cetaphil. It's a none soap liquid (you can get it in a bar form)but the liquid is better. It will soothe it and in time that problem will go away. Try it.
