It may not be too unusual to get acne and spots with constipation, as if you are constipated, you have a build up of toxins in your body.

You may find that if you can solve your constipation problem, you acne and spots will resolve.

Definitely. In my case, I feel a twinge on the spot where I am going to get the pimple. If I resist the urge to go to the toilet, I get that twinge (any part of the skin) and a pimple develops soon after.
