Acne under jaw-line
Hi am a 32-yo mother of two. I am not on any contraceptives and drink approx 10-12 glasses of water a day. However, I have noticed pimples occuring under my jawline/upper neck area. Plz advise what I can use to treat these, they're UGLY. Also, any offhand idea of what could be causing it?? Apart from this problem, I have no other pimples. Thanking you for your time.

Jaw-line acne is sometimes associated with hormonal disturbances. I suggest that a hormone profile be done. Treatment with Diane35/Androcur is often indicated for jaw-line acne.
