Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, you have acne bumps on your lower face, i.e. chin and jawline. I suggest you use either Nadifloxacin 1 % gel or Benzoyl peroxide 2.5 % gel, twice daily for a few days.

Thank you doctor,

What is the cause of my acne? I never had acne at all in my entire life.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Transient hormonal imbalance during a menstrual cycle, stress, diet, hot and humid weather, and sunscreens and moisturizers can sometimes be implicated in causing acne. Do you use a sunscreen or moisturizer on the face?
