What does hormonal acne look like? Whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, cysts and nodules are all common hormonal acne symptoms. Normally, whiteheads and blackheads do not cause pain, inflammation or swelling, but if they do, then they are most likely forming into cysts and pustules.

Hormonal acne happens because of hormone fluctuations, especially testosterone. A rise in testosterone may stimulate the excessive sebum production from the sebaceous glands. When this sebum combines with dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells, it results in clogged pores and acne.

Conditions that affect hormone levels can trigger acne. Here are a few examples:

  • Puberty
  • Menstruation
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Increased levels of androgens
  • According to estimates, acne occurs in around 50 percent of the female population ages 20 to 20 and 25 percentages 40 to 49.
