Isolated Acne Problems?

I am in my mid 20's and I have had light acne for about 4 years, but whats strange is its only on my chin below my lips. My entire face is 100% clear except this area which I have persistant acne that wont seem to go away. I dont even have to use any products on the rest of my face and it stays clear but this one spot ALWAYS is troublesome. Does anyone else have anything similar to this, or know what the best stuff to use is? I have tried almost every product, Retin A, Benzaclin, Proactive, etc etc and none of it is totally effective it always returns.

Re: Isolated Acne Problems?

Yea that is strange how you just have it in one spot. The only thing to really use would be the same products that everyone else uses for acne. Have you tried taking pills and changing your diet?

Re: Isolated Acne Problems?

I'm 20 and I have a problem similar to yours. A litte over a year ago I got acne all over my face. There wasn't an area of my face where I didn't break out. Now I never get any on my cheeks. I haven't even put topicals or anything on them for over a year. They just cleared up on their own. I can keep the rest of my face clear with topicals and BC. The only area that I absolutely cannot get to clear is my chin. I have tons of tiny pimples covering my chin. I've just given up on it.

Re: Isolated Acne Problems?

there was a thread a while back about flouride from toothpaste causing acne just around the mouth area. some people have a sensitivity/allergy to it i guess. search for "flouride" on this board and you should be able to find the thread. also, google "acne and flouride" for more info. try using flouride free toothpaste for a few weeks. good luck!

Re: Isolated Acne Problems?

I am the same way. I asked my derm about this and she said that is where the sebacious glands are biggest. Sebacious glands being the ones that produce sebum and give us all hell. I've never had a zit anywhere other than this area but tons in that area. I've recently been taking a centrum once-a-day and a 30 mg zinc supplement. It's been working AWESOME although I'm not ready to say that the problem is solved yet. But I did recently read that a symptom of zinc deficieny is acne.
