Possible Connection Between My Hormone and Acne Problems

Several years ago when I was 14 in 2003, I started to develop a severe case of acne. Only 2 months later, my growth came to a complete stop. My lack of physical development soon followed. Now, it has been about 4 years since all this happened, and I have not shown any signs of growth or development whatsoever.

Last year, I went on Accutane, and it did help, but it only worked while I was on the treatment. During the last few months of 2006, I slowly started getting acne back. My acne made a complete return in January 2007.

Since about last year, I made an interesting observation regarding my developmental problems and my acne. Both occurred around the same time, and the two problems coexisted. I think my acne still would have existed in 2006 if it weren't for the Accutane. But anyway, I think that there might be a connection between the two problems. I think that perhaps my acne is merely a symptom of my developmental problem.

I don't really know how or if the two are related, but I know that something very strange is going on. Both problems have coexisted, and neither show signs of going away on their own.

I did some research on hormones and acne, but the main thing that comes up is women hormones and acne problems. I'm a guy at 18 years old. Is it just women that get hormone problems or not? Or perhaps I'm looking at this situation the wrong way. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Possible Connection Between My Hormone and Acne Problems

If you are really worried, you need to see an endocrinologist. Could be at 18, that you have just stopped growing.
