Acne and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS is a very common female hormonal disorder, one in which great advances in treatment have been made. [
PCOSupport: The Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Association Web Site] One of the four main features of PCOS is testosterone-induced skin and hair changes. These are acne, increased facial and body hair and scalp hair thinning. Other features are irregular periods, difficulty controlling weight and metabolic changes. Female acne can be a sign of PCOS. If you have some of the other features, getting worked up for PCOS is a good idea. On the other hand, many women with hormonal acne have just acne, nothing else.
