Cystic acne on the chin with no hormonal imbalance. What should I do?
Hi, I am 23 years old with adult cystic acne on my chin. Last week I visited a dermatologist. The test report was normal. I don’t have any hormonal issues. What should I do? Any suggestions? Is it normal to have adult cystic acne without any hormonal imbalance?
@khushboo Hello, Hormonal imbalance is not the only reason for cystic acne. Other factors such as Diet, Genetics, and bacteria and oil build-up also cause cystic acne. Cystic acne occurs when bacteria, dead skin cells, and sebum (the substance that makes your face feel oily) get trapped beneath the skin’s surface and become infected. This leads to a large, swollen cyst (bump) that can hurt just to touch. Understanding the different factors that contribute to cystic acne flare-ups will help you.
