Sudden appearance of acne in the jawline. Itchy. Pre-menopause symptom?

I never had acne before, not as a teenager not as an adult. Suddenly in my late 40s i start getting what looks like little pimples or almost rash like around my jaw line close to my ear and down under the jaw line heading to the neck almost. Its itchy at times also. Is this perimenopause related? Is there anything to make it go away.

The rashes should not be menopause related. You should see a skin specialist after ruling out possible dermatitis. You can apply calamine lotion for the time being to reduce the itching but a doctor should take a look at the rash to rule out infection.
