Stainless steel bowls. She had this on n off before I started the oil, it is just a bit more reddish now ..but again, it could be age or any other allergy related thing..ugh lol no clue..
Lisa try stopping all oil. See if that helps. Buster got chin acne when he was the same age and it has never gone away. But I know that when they get older it goes away. Not always but most of the time. I honestly think it's a Bully teenage thing like 12 and 13 year old skin kids that the parents have to take them to the dermatologist because they get acne. We all get it in one way or the other. It's just one of those things.
You won't have a problem with bad smell if you use coconut oil plus you can use it yourself for nutrition and/or as a moisturizer, its great for that purpose. I have given coconut oil in the past to Ace but after the initial eating he didn't care for it and haven't tried it much since then. The kibble I feed has Omega 3's in it and I also, as a regular topper on the kibble, at least once a week and often more times than that, use tuna or salmon, [the fish not the oil] which Ace loves as does the maltese. Both are excellent sources of protein and Omega 3

I agree that the oil staying on the chin could be causing clogged pores. Keeping the area dry after eating and drinking may also help reduce the redness and the amount of acne. If you really want to treat it you can wash the acne area with antibacterial soap daily. Good Luck!
