    Unfortunately this is common in peri and or menopause. Adult acne is listed as one of the symptoms on the post about 66 menopause symptoms. I get huge zits on my face too especially around my jaw line. Acne will most definitely return in menopause if you suffered with it as a teen. But even if you didn't it is common to get it in menopause. Have you been to a dermatologist?

    Hi AG,

    So sorry to hear your going through facial breakouts during this time of change. I personally couldn't take it anymore & did see

    the Dermatologist. She gave me a topical product (Retin-A) as well as Doxycyline 50mg twice a day. I'm relieved I have one less bothersome problem to think about. Now I don't anticipate the next painful & ugly pimple or flare up of Rosacea.

    Hope whatever treatment plan you chose

    works well & your skin is smooth & bright!

    Here for you, XO

    hi there - You might have Rosacea - for some reason, a lot of woman develop it in Peri/menopause - if it gets out of hand, it can lead to ocular rosacea & that is never a good thing when dealing with your eyes. Best to go to a dermatologist & get it checked out - Unfortunately certain foods like, red wine, chocolate, coffee can trigger it, but for me, stress & heat play at huge part & not to mention hormones!!! if you have rosacea, chances are you will be put on a topical & Docycline pills to stop the inflammation - Good luck, but do get it checked out -
