Chin cystic acne
Of late, esp late after late 20s,I have been getting painful cystic acne flares only on chin randomly and they take week or two to come to head. Is this hormone related. I did hormonal tests and results were normal. How can I treat this condition

Adult acne is mainly in chin area, if hormones are normal it could be due to other reasons like food habits,cosmetics, facials, stress and overweight. Treatment remains same , benzoyl peroxide gels and one course of antibiotics such as minocycline.
