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

Flesh colored bumps on chin I am 20, f, had since 10 yrs old. Wont go away with acne treatments doesn't hurt or itch nothing inside what is this?

Can I use a neutrogena acne pads after shaving my head as a hair bump preventer instead of using an actually After shave preventer. For ex (bump patrl?

Stick with soothing: My guess is that the acne pads wouldn't work as well. It seems that shea butter and tea tree oil are the ingredients that contribute to soothing the hair follicles and skin in the After Shave and Bump Preventer (which is really interesting...have never heard of such a thing!). Neutrogena acne pads are intentionally more drying containing alcohol and salicylic acid. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Seldom have pimple/cystic acne. ONE cystic appeared 1mnth ago, no longer red but big bump remain & it won't come to a head. How do I treat it?

Let it be: Leaving it alone is the best option. You may try warm fomentation. Do not try to pop it as that will only lead to a scar. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
Practice safe sex.

Manage it: Listen friend. Most of what you read / hear about acne is not true. You'll scar from a bad pimple whether or not it pops. If it's this severe, you need to prevent new pimples from forming -- you can do nothing about what's happened. Keep loading on the topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid and get with your physician to add some prescription Rx for a few months. Best wishes. ...Read more
