Acne On Jawline

Recommended Posts

I doubt this is related to celiac disease directly but I wonder if it is autoimmune related, so I thought I'd post it here.

 

I have jawline acne that is driving me nuts. I almost always have at least one or two zits there and they range in size from small whiteheads to volcanoes that can cast a shadow. I have had it for about 5 years or so, maybe more but probably not less.  I know it was present when I went gluten-free almost 3 years ago because I started taking a topical medication for it.  It was present, I think, when I started taking meds for hypothyroidism (synthroid at first) too.

 

I've read that jawline acne is often hormonal... then how do I get rid of it?  I'm getting a bunch of scars on my chin that I could do without, and I would like this to be done. It is possible I am in perimenopause but I have no obvious symptoms, and my periods have never been so regular as they have been since going gluten-free.

 

Has anyone treated this successfully, and if so, how?

I hear you on that! I started my period a month before I turned 12 and they've always been awful...and are getting worse. I do think I'm in perimenopause and I do think that there is a hormonal component to my breakouts. Really interested to see what others say.

I was having a horrible breakout chin line around my mouth and eyebrows.  After going to a dermatologist and getting put on antibiotics (that were killing my stomach) I read on-line "this breakout can indicate a ZINC defiency .  I started taking a multi-vitamin and drinking more water (stopped the antibiotic) ~ voila the breakout stopped.

 

I do struggle with this breakout during winter more than warm weather months so there could also be a vitamin D issue too.  I haven't found any literature directly relating vitamin D to the breakout.  Do try and include "healthy fats" like those in avocado to your diet to help your skin too.

 

Also take time to disinfect your phone.
