I am going against all the doctrines and saying: I am not going to a dermatologist. It’s just a pimple. Plus I have good reason not to go, as you’ll see.
I had bad acne through all my teen years and a good portion of my 20’s. I spent so much time at the dermatologist in my teens years I can’t tell you. Mom paid for antiobiotics, skin treatments, etc. Nothing helped.
When I turned 20, I was on my own completely, so no money to pay for expensive treatments. In my late 20’s the acne miraculously cleared up over most of my face. So I have no reason to believe the derm can do anything.
Anyway. I only get pimples on my chin now, and one just keeps coming back. It fills up, then drains, then goes away for a while, then fills up again. Always around my period. And it’s the same pore.
Why does it do this and how do I make it stop? It must never be draining properly or maybe the bacteria that cause it to clog always live in there but I hate it. It hurts.
Any advice? I use good soap, my facial skin is oily, so I use Neutrogena which works wonders everywhere else but not on this little bastard. I also wear very little makeup, etc.
