Hormonal Acne: Hormonal acne occurs first and foremost around the mouth: on the chin, below the nose, around the sides of the mouth, and sometimes up the jawline. As hormonal acne worsens, however, it can spread to the cheeks and the forehead. Other body parts can be affected, too, but only in severe cases, and once it has advanced.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
