I have acne breakouts and head pain, is this caused by menopause?

Im in lyme remission after 2o yrs of Lyme. Several yrs ago I had to have a hysterectomy bc of the damage from the Lyme. Two months ago I’ve started having acne breakouts that are around my jawline. Also for the past week I have the sensation of someone pulling my hair out. Could these maybe be menopause or something more serious?

Age: 44
Medications: Nothing.
General Information: Also have mthfr gene defect and on vit d supplement. Not of anything that’s a medication

Yes. Menopause or perimenopause hormonal changes will cause acne breakouts especially in the T zone – chin, jaw, forehead – and cheeks. You can also experience some sort of scalp pain which would explain your “pulling hair out” feeling.

Yes, the symptoms can be due to menopause..
You should get treated for acne and take pain relievers for scalp pain after consulting a Physician..

Hope this helps..
