    Chin Acne

    I've had acne problem on my t-zone area a few years back, but it's been solved, more or less. However, these few years, I just can't get rid of acne on my chin. There's the ones with yellow pus, but mostly the painful red bumps.

    On a side note, I have thin hair, unwanted hairs on my abdominal area and irregular period ever since I started menstruating. I Googled and those are the signs of hormonal imbalance. Is it so? How can I solve these problems?

    You are absolutely correct, jawline acne combined with excess hair and abnormal periods, can be a sign of hormonal issues. It is very important to have this evaluated, to prevent further hormonal issues as well as acne scarring.

    Your gynecologist may be the most helpful in checking these issues.

    Often, mild hormonal imbalances can be easily fixed with safe, low dose oral medications such as metformin and sprironolactone.

    I hope that helps
