Seeing as its along the jaw line I would say its prob hormonal, are you taking birthcontrol? that could be causeing it. But its VERY mild. Count your blessings! :)

Wow....it's eerie how similar your acne is to mine - mine is mainly focused on mouth/chin too. It is mild at best. Try to enjoy your trip and ignore negative comments from family.

Thanks for your comments - they definitely helped me to stop stressing a bit.

I actually went to the doctors concerning something else not long after making that post, and it turns out I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, causing my testosterone levels to be raised, and therefore causing the spots on my chin - well done to A damsel in Distress for noticing the hormonal link.

Anyhow, that might be something worth looking into for any ladies still suffering from acne into their 20s and beyond - could be PCOS.
