Thanks for writing to us.
Sudden appearance of acne is most commonly associated with hormonal imbalances. A detailed hormonal profile needs to be checked along with specific treatment like systemic antibiotics and retinoids to take care of your problem. Consulting a dermatologist will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
