Polycystic ovary syndrome and Acne

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is characterised by menstrual irregularities/abnormalities, hirsutism (male-like hairiness in women), obesity and metabolic syndrome, resulting from abnormalities in the metabolism of androgens and oestrogen and in the control of androgen production. It was once thought to be mainly due to an ovarian defect as it was often associated with enlarged polycystic ovaries, hence its name polycystic ovary syndrome. However, it is now known that PCOS may occur in women with normal sized ovaries and polycystic ovarian changes can be found in women with normal menstrual cycles. ( Derm Net )

If you have been diagnosed the PCOS you are probably experiencing acne in some form. Your skin may fell rough like sandpaper when you run your fingertips over it and you may have a few pimples that explode onto the skin.
