Don't worry Brujeria, it will heal...Please don't get so stressed, it will just add to ur problem..If it makes u feel any better I am 26 dealing with the problem since I was 15....One thing I DO know is stressing doesn't solve anything...Try seeing a derm in your area..Even ur general practitioner could help so start by seeing them..How long have u been using Proactiv? It takes more than a month to see improvement..In the first 2-3 weeks your face looks worse than when u started...Hope this helps....

Ya nobody cares to have acne. Advice to you though if your that upset over it and you only have it on your chin then see a dermi he will prescribe something and within a few months you should be golden. It will be worth the $50 visit or couple of visits.

any treatment will take time, unfortunatley.. look into birth control pills if you are female.. it will take three months, but from what i hear, chin acne is mainly caused by horomones which birth control pills will regulate.. i have also heard good things about taking 7-9 grams of B5 (vitamin) daily.. i am currently 2.5 weeks into birth control pills and 1.5 weeks into b5 therapy.. i am in so much pain from acne cysts/nodules that talking, eating, yawning hurts.. and on top of that i lost another job today because i am in too much pain to leave the house in a work capacity.. hopefully after one more month this will be better..

i cannot afford a dermatologist (no health insurance), but you might want to try that too.. personally, i refuse to accept antibiotics as an acne remedy bcause of the adverse health effects, but it could cure you..

surround yourself with comfort, wholesome foods, good friends, a good book and wait it out.. clear skin will happen, eventually..

good luck to all of us..
