I’ve broken out in pimples on my chest. Just wondering does anyone know the cause and how to help clear them up? I’m becoming very self-concious

  • There ya go, my armpit acne break out is still happening. I’ve tried the vinegar, face scrubs, acne treatments. Nothing us working. They are the big red blind pimples too so it hurts

  • I’ve recently had a acne break out in my arm pits ???? I’ve been applying apple cider vinegar before bed as well as oxy10 pimple cream. I’m hoping tge breakout is due to me going through menopause. Acne armpits I’d not a look I want to last

  • You could be dehydrated as skin can break out and perhaps you have a dry thirsty feel overall. Try drinking plenty of fluids ( water is best ) everyday , eat fresh fruits and vegies etc.. and see if you feel any better . If you get worse see a doctor . Good luck :)

  • Drink plenty of water. I get the same at times. It could also be a hormonal issue. My doctor prescribed a low dose antibiotic / skin support tablet when mine was quite bad

  • Exfoliating gloves when showering and don’t use a soap with added moisturizer.

  • maybe heavy clothing and just heat from being overdressed in winter? I get this too during winter but it does tend to clear during the warmer months, make sure not to squeeze :)

  • Pimple cream works good!

  • it could be an infection on your skin, show your dr and he could recommend some anti bacterial cream for you

  • It could be from perspiration just make sure you use a gentle cleanser on there once a day.
