Is it cystic acne?

I have developed acne along my jaw line since having my ovaries removed. My skin itches really NAD, then brown bumps appear. They are larger than poles and never have a head to them.

Facial Acne and Bumps have many treatments -- lasers, peels, medication, microneedling -- go see an expert!

I would need to see you in person to evaluate whether this is acne from hormonal changes after your ovary removal, or something else. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
