Post Hormonal Acne

Well I know I have hormonal Acne..IT is on the bottom area of my face mainly( i am a male)..they are tiny bumps not red just small under my mouth like by my chin and in between. they occasionally become red and I pop them but they come back up.. Basically.. there is no cure for them.. I can only contain them..does anybody else have these or anything for them>?

after you shave and your face is dry..wait about a half hour...put some 2.5% BP on the area...it might seem red at first but your face will get used to it...I have the same problem...do you get cysts there also??

Best product so far I've used for shaving - Benzashave a 5% prescription shaving cream and a Bump Guard Razor designed to reduce ingrown hairs. But you must cleanse your face after you shave.
THe only part of my face i am satisfied with.
