Anonymous,

According to our PCOS page, ance can be a symptom of PCOS. (http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/polycystic-ovary-syndrome)

However, since I don't know which came first, it's hard to tell if the two are even related.

Have you talked to your doctor about this or seen a dermatologist? Are you eating clean and drinking enough water?

The best bet is to see a dermatologist-- see what they recommend specifically for you.

Please visit our acne page for more information: http://www.empowher.com/condition/acne/treatments

Best,

Danielle.
