I know exactly what you mean. The bumps that I have are really small red bumps almost clustered together under my chin. I picked at some of them thinking that they would go away faster, and now the skin is dark red and dry. I think that this is hormonal, were you approaching your period when this started happening? Are you on birth control pills? My doctor told me that any lower face acne activity is more than likely hormonal. I am dealing with this also and have not found out how to control it yet, because it doesnt seem to be responding to the benzaclin gel that works for every other part of my face. Cystic acne is the hard bump like acne that forms under the skin but never really come to surface. I feel that what you have not cystic acne but is similar to mine.
I remember reading that too about the acne along the jawline and chin being hormonal. But then someone told me that all acne is ultimately hormonal! But I am on BC so maybe it is that...

I have had the cystic acne where it is hard for about the size of a nickle! But these aren't that big. It's like a premature pimple because it never turns into a whitehead!!! It's really annoying :( because I don't know how to treat it!! :-/
