Do I need to visit a dermatologist to treat my recurring acne ? Can nursing provide temporary relief from acne ?

When Im breastfeeding my acne dissappears! I m 27. I have 2 kids. When I was preggo with my first baby I had bad acne. 2 days after I started nursing her all my acne dissappeared! Even my back became clear. I nursed her 15 mths, and then I got preggo with my 2nd baby. The acne came back a little when pregnant with my 2nd. I started to nurse him, and I was acne free. I weaned him at 9mths, and a mth later I ve got terrible acne again. How can I replicate these results, but without nursing? Is there a hormone I m high in when nursing and low when not? Prolactin seems to give people zits, could it be that it makes mine disappear?
