Acne at 30?
Hi there

I have recently developed somewhat of a pimple problem only on my chin area and it can be quite painful sometimes. I read in a local paper yesterday that pimples on the chin area could be hormonal, is this true? I have been on the contraceptive injection on and off for about 10 years.

many thanks

Hallo Rachel
Yes it could be caused by hormonal changes. Try benzoyl peroxide (e.g. Oxy 10) on the area?
