Can it be only Stress

For a long time i had no acne, but about 2 weeks ago i started my exams and i started gettin quite a few spots (not big problem) but as each day passed more and more kept comin up.....on the last day of exams it was at its worst and i had the most spots ive ever had.

Can spots be caused purely by stress?

If i dont pop any, will they leave any marks?

Thanks for ur replies

Yea, ever since summer ended I've been staying up late almost every night... and my face has been breaking out the last couple of days, it's either stress or the new cleanser I've switched to.

Speaking from experience, I definitely think that stress can cause or at least seriously exacerbate acne. I had relatively no acne during my adolescent years and late in high school. During my freshmen year of college, I pledged a fraternity, which consisted of getting little to no sleep, constantly being worried about shit you have to do(clean the house, get hazed, favors for brothers), and many other stressful activities. I broke out pretty bad throughout the whole year. After I got initiated, the acne slowly began to go away, as I was in a much less stressful situation. 6 months later, I'm not quite acne free, but its hardly noticably and doesn't really bother me anymore. I don't use any acne products, just rinse with water in the morning and use cetaphil gentle cleanser at night.
