Post Big pimples on chin that last *months*

Does anyone know what the deal is with these?? I had a baaaad breakout on my chin, not right in the middle but on either sides, over 2 months, yes 2 motnhs ago!!!!! They started as big under-the-skin bumps, some in clusers, like 3 in one! They oozed pus for about 3 weeks. Anyways they don't ooze pus anymore and aren't quite as big and have popped out to the surface a bit more, BUT they are still there!!! Does anyone know what these are, why they are caused and what I can do to get rid of them. I seem to always have pimples in this area. If I am forced to do an oral med, I will, but it isn't my first choice.
I went on minocycline once and acutally now that i think about it (it did nothing by the way) this is when I started getting these terrible breakouts on my chin. I have tried tazorac, proactive, BP, nothing works on these suckers.

thanks so much.

Sounds like cystic acne. I just developed that after taking accutane - 28 years old, never experienced those before. I get them all around my mouth, chin, jawline and cheeks. Do you pick or squeeze smaller pimples? I was told that the cysts can be caused by sending the infection deeper in the skin by squeezing or picking pimples in that area.
