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 might seem red at first but your face will get used to it...I have the same 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.
