Acne and itchy breakout


Q: I have mild acne on my chin and jar line that i can not get rid of. I am 24 yrs old and have been dealing with it since i was 20. I've done body cleanses, all kinds of different acne treatments. I've been using proactive for over a month and its still not working. I dont know what else to do. Also since i started using proactive, and i dont know if this is related to it, but i started getting bad breakouts on my bikini line and legs, and it itches really bad. I dont know if maybe its a allergy to the proactive or if its totally seperate, but the breakout is getting worse and unbearable from the itching. Also very unattractive to have a breakout there.
