    I have been getting acne too but it's different than the occasional pimple I used to get. This is more like tiny pimples on top of my nose and along the sides. It's weird

    Yes, unfortunately it happens....I believe it's caused by low progesterone.

    Hi Maureen

    I've just turned 52 and yes, I have got the acne bug too... not just on my face but a few on my breasts, on the backs of my arms and even found some on my legs and stomach..... I never had had acne as a teenager, obviously my peri is making up for lost time lol
