My chin was super itchy and after I started scratching it a bunch of bumps that look like and appeared? I don't get acne normally and it's still itchy

Cause of the itch?: You need to look back at what triggered the itch: if you were shaving, you probably irritated your skin and by scratching your hair follicles became infected or inflamed (these are the bumps). Your skin may also be allergic to a cream which you might have used. For now apply a little bit of hydrocortisone cream and antibiotic cream (mixed) once or twice. ...Read more

Acne: Sounds like you still have some acne. The white stuff that comes out is sebum or oil mixed with dead skin and immune cells. You may need some exfoliation to aid your skin in sloughing off the top layer so that your pores do not get clogged. A dermatologist can put you on a good regimen that may include some sessions with a aesthetician who can help clear your skin. ...Read more

Hard : Hard to tell without a clinical examination so i would see a dermatologist, but perhaps these are milium, sebaceous hyperplasia, or other possibilities. Read more refissa and obagi at the link below. In combination, these treatments can help sun damaged skin and milium. Another option might be extraction if they are indeed milium.
