Jawline acne, means hormonal?

I've had moderate acne for 7 1/2 years and for the first 5 1/2 years, i never had any breakouts at all along my jawline, maybe occaisonally one pimple once in a while. i mostly brokeout on my forehead, cheeks, and the sides of my face. about a year ago or so, my jawline just went apeshit and broke out all of the sudden. both my left side and my right side started getting alot of acne. but now, my left jawline is pretty clear and isn't as persistant as it was, whereas my right jawline wont stop breaking out! i get alot of cysts in that area and it's the spot that breaks out the most then any other area of my face at the moment. I read somewhere on this forum that if u breakout along ur jawline, that means it's hormonal. is that really true?? i've kind of suspected maybe my acne had something to do with hormones because even at the age of 21, i'm still er... super sexually frisky :doh: i thought i would've passed this stage when i got out of my adolescent years, but apparently not. i should just go get my hormones tested. is there anything the doctors can give me or anything i could buy to balance my hormones?

Hmm I don't know..I have the same problem. I used to break out on my forehead and cheeks a few years back but for the past few years my acne is concentrated mostly along my jawline and chin...does that mean it is hormonal?

I know in women that its hormonal, I didn't know about men. I had acne since I was 11, but it turned hormonal around age 22. I'm 25 now and still deal with hormonal acne, so you're never too old. To control mine I started birth control, and after about 5 months it cleared it up. Now I only suffer from occasional breakouts due to my cycle and when I go off my no/low sugar diet.

No. My jawline cysts were an allergic reaction. Besides, most acne is related to hormones. Exceptions would be allergic reactions and clogged pores from topicals.
