    Hi,

    I am a 21 year old, fortunate enough to have never suffered from any acne or severe spots. In the last 2 weeks I have started to notice tiny pimples around my cheeks, nose and forehead. I have never had anything like it before and having done some research, I have discovered that this can lead to acne.

    I have been on the same contraceptive pill for 7 months so I doubt it has anything to do with that. I have also not changed my diet (which is healthy) or taken any other medicine. The only thing that has changed ever since these sports started growing, is that I have started exercising more and going to the gym 5x a week.

    What may be a contributing factor, is the fact that last week, for the first time, I forgot 3 pills in a row and started bleeding again, after having just come off a week before. Could this be the reason, since my hormones and body may be a little confused? I also don't wear any skin make up.

    I appreciate all the help! Thank you
