Why am I getting acne at age 51???
My first thought is remember that acne is a hormonal disease!! It occurs between puberty and menopause. Could you be now in perimenopause? Many women find that they suddenly start breaking out again (so annoying!) during this time of transition. Similarly, some women find they break out if they start hormone replacement therapy.
As for treatment, please see a dermatologist if it’s not gone soon. This type of acne is sometimes not controlled well by topical agents – they will often help but not truly control the breakouts.
