In brief: No

It's good to supplement with B12 if you are a vegetarian, necessary is you are a strict vegetarian / vegan.
Don't try to figure out why you have acne; simply manage it with topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid, supplementing with your physician's Rx if needed, until it remits on its own.
