Why does genital acne occur?
The skin in the genital area is very sensitive, and sweat, tight clothing, and body hair create an environment that encourages rashes and acne.
In addition, hormonal changes can cause acne on the face, neck, shoulders, torso, and vaginal area. If you’re susceptible to hormonal acne, you might also be susceptible to vaginal acne. During certain phases of your menstrual cycle, you may be more prone to acne too.
The good news is that the older you get, the less likely you are to get acne.
Skin trauma, stress, food habits, insulin resistance, and body mass index can all play a role in the development of acne.
