Hi, Docs! I’m in my late thirties but lately for the past few years, I’ve experienced what I believe could be hormonal acne with breakouts along my jawline extending to my neck. They’re usually cysts-like, red, swollen and painful. I’ve tried to refrain from ‘popping’ them but they always leave very dark scars on the area even after they go away.

Previously I thought I had very oily skin but recently, my skin has became very dry, itchy, flaky with red patches on the cheeks from my upper eyelids down to my jawline. It doesn’t really affect the rest of my face like the forehead, nose and chin. I’ve tried alot of skincare products but nothing worked. Should I be concerned to visit a dermatologist for a consultation?
