Not related: do not take those meds for acne. See your doctor first to discuss better options.

Doubtful: I doubt that completion of antibiotic and pain pills would bring on acne - but even if it did, you can't be on either long-term. See your PCP or a dermatologist if it is too bad to tolerate. Best!

Acne: Amoxicillin is not a standard treatment for acne, so I don't think that it is related. Stress to your body from your recent dental surgery may be the reason for the breakout. Acne flares are also common at different times in the menstrual cycle.A wide variety of treatments are available for acne, from over the counter solutions to topical and oral prescriptions. See your doctor for advice.
