Acne In Neck And Jaw Line Area
I'm 53 yrs old and have acne on my face, mostly the jaw line and neck and nothing seems to help get rid of it, any recommendations?
Meds: Many patients do well with over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid preparations. Some patients require topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids as well. If the over the counter meds alone don't control your acne after a month of daily use, see a doctor for additional treatment options. It is important to be persistent, and some patients 'get worse before they get better'. ...Read more

Why am i getting pimples on my chin and jaw pine and neck

If you are breastfeeding, this can cause irregular periods, too. Since you are having both acne and irregular periods, I recommend a visit to your doc for blood work. This can check for imbalances in your hormones. Best Regards. ...Read more
Sharp pain under my right jaw line. no lump or swelling. Saw a dentist, nothing wrong with my teeth. Have acne breakouts around mouth area.

See an oral surgeon. ...Read more
