chin prob!?

I have always since late teens early 20's suffered with redness blotchiness and acne on the chin,i know that especially through teens and into 20's it was down to hormones as usually if it is in this place mainly or only this is very common for girls and women,also coming on and off of meds for spots and pill worsened and made it better,chin was terrible wheni cam of of pill after a long time and this is also common appparantly suppose it may leave you with a bit of a hormone balance,i notice that when a bleed is coming up on the pill my chin gets bad then with the best will in the world doing everything it won't go until end of bleed so its def a internal thing,plus i was diagnosed with PCOS last year after going to my docs about my chin he referred me for scan and the result came back that i had pcos,so that explains it too,guy on net who suffered ance for years and did all sorts has vowed to help others and on eof the first advice that he gives is about what we all talk about


cleansers etc he said you should use gylcerin based soap or wash eg neutrogena but when i used this it did help but my skin felt tight and started to get irritated in some areas so does anyone have advice for treating the chin,also do have very sensitive skin

Update 2:

thanks for your answers,yeah true what you say about the cleanser i use,but i always feel alot of them are drying or unless they say other,that they may be poreblocking or feel liie they leave a film,but the prob is i feel now after getting into this bad habit that unless my face fels like dry ish or tight that its not clean properly,but obviously its not doing me a big favour like that either. I did for many years not wear much makeup and just cleansed and moisturised as alot of companies and people say a toner is not necessary and depends on your skin type if you need one,plus i have used the clinique mild one thats alcohol fee,but they

Update 3:

all have salicylic acid in cliniques clarifying lotions and this made my face feel clean but did start to almost burn and make skin very red and dry,so i can't win,did used to only use non wash cleansers and used to opt for the wipe over ones as i couldn't be bothered with massaging it all over the face and wiping off then having to repeat plus alot of those cleansers you massage on don't stay fliud very long they start to dry up so theres nothing to wipe off in the end and you feel like you've not cleaned properly,i assume that even at the time i used a wipe over cleanser my other internal factors were diff then cause my skin was better then

Update 4:

also if alot of the skin and acne probs are caused by bacteria what about when its hormones and other conditions like what i've got pcos,then i don't see why you would be prescribed or encouraged to use something to kill bacteria as your acne would be there for a diff reason

    You don’t have to suffer from acne any more - There is a way to a blemish-free skin...

    If you are between 16 and 20 years old, odds are you are having problems with the old enemy, acne, and that you are trying to find a solution to it. You’re far from being alone in this matter, as nearly 70% of all youths suffer from more or less severe forms of acne. And for many people, moving into the late 20s does not mean an end to acne, but the same old problem.

    The most embarrassing, of course, is facial acne. Pimples on you back or chest can be hidden under clothing even in the summertime, but your face is always exposed. Every person you meet will look you in the face and even if no comment is made you know what they are all thinking, don’t you? Fact is, people tend to judge others from the clothes they wear, the state and color of their skin and other such superficial aspects. This is why you have to get rid of acne.

    Causes of acne

    Facial acne is easier to treat than body acne, but has a bigger chance of coming back in the form of flare-ups. Dust, air pollution, cosmetics and shaving are all factors that work in favor of acne by irritating your skin or clogging your pores. Moreover, dust and air pollution also bring the bacteria, which are responsible for pimples. Whenever a pores is clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, bacteria seize the chance and start multiplying in the sebaceous follicle. Before long, the follicle turns into a blackhead or a whitehead (in mild cases), or even into pustules or papules (in severe forms of acne).

    Different types of acne

    Severe forms or acne affect few people. However, these conditions are very hard to bear by those who are indeed affected. They are extremely disfiguring and are usually accompanied by psychological effects.

    Acne conglobata

    Acne conglobata is a chronic and severe form of acne vulgaris (common acne). It is usually characterized by deep abscesses, severe inflammation, severe damage to the skin and scarring. Blackheads are usually conspicuous and widespread. It often appears on the face, chest, back, thighs, upper arms and buttocks. It usually affects people between the ages of 18 and 30.

    In acne conglobata, inflammatory nodules form around multiple comedones, gradually increasing in size until they break open and discharge pus. Deep ulcers may form under the nodules, leading to keloid-type scars, and crusts may form over deeply ulcerated nodules, Acne conglobata may be preceded by acne cysts: papules or pustules that do not heal, but instead rapidly deteriorate. Occasionally, acne conglobata flares up in acne that had been dormant for many years.

    Acne fulminans

    Acne fulminans is a sudden onset of highly destructive inflammation, which normally afflicts young men. Symptoms of severe nodulocystic, often ulcerating acne, aching joints and fever are apparent. It may result from unsuccessful treatment of acne conglobata. It does not respond well to antibiotics, so accutane and oral steroids are normally prescribed. Corticosteroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications may be given to reduce inflammation. Attacks of acne fulminans may recur, and the patient may develop acne that requires long-term treatment with isotretinoin.

    Gram-negative folliculitis

    Gram-negative folliculitis is a complication of abused and long-term use of antibiotic. Patients with this type of acne are usually treated with accutane since it is known to be effective against gram-negative bacteria. The word “Gram” refers to a blue stain used in laboratories to detect microscopic organisms. Certain bacteria do not stain blue and so they are called “Gram negative.”

    Pyoderma faciale

    Pyoderma faciale is the type of acne that affects females, mainly from the 20-40 age group. It is confined to the face, appears suddenly as both deep and superficial cystic lesions of the face with interconnecting "tunnels" between cysts, reddish inflammation of the skin, and slight swelling (edema) of the skin. It rarely persists more than a year or so, and is not associated with oily skin.

    Servere types of acne cannot be treated at home. Take my word for it. Go and see your doctor or dermatologist before your condition worsens. Remember that beautiful skin reflects satisfactory health.

    Hope This Helps?

    First of all, if the cleanser you are using is good and effective and you like can combat the tightness. Make sure that you use an appropriate toner for your skin type (a "freshener" might even be better). The best way to use this is to spritz it on, then take some cotton pads (or balls), wet them and ring them out really well, and remove the freshener you just put on. Then, while your face is still moist, use an APPROPRIATE moisturizer.

    There are so many products out there, you really could use some one-on-one guidance from a dermatolgist or find a trustworthy and well-trained skin specialist (someone who does facials) to look at your skin and advise you.

    Go to Arbonne online and look at their products. You will get some good into.

    The key is that you have to keep your skin properly hydrated, otherwise you will keep producing more oil on your skin.

    Drink lots of water every day. There are some nice teas in the health food sections that "support female systems" and "promote hormone balance" They are no substitute for medical care, but they help a little.

    I know what you are talking about with the chin actually hurts sometimes, doesn't it? Unfortunately there is not a lot more you can do!

    Keep your body hydrated

    Keep your skin hydrated

    Stay healthy

    Try the teas

    Hopefully you will see some improvement!

    Best of Luck to YOU!
