I have noticed right before a big weight loss I get acne on my belly and backside.  At least, it's not on my face! LOL!  My aunt used to call them skin stones.  It's just a hard chuck that comes out when I scratch it with no puss.  It itches, too.  I have read on several forums that there is no connection between acne and weight loss, however, lots of people seem to get acne while they are loosing weight. 

 

Although, I am not nuts about it, I don't mind it that much afterwards when I have dropped the lbs.  smile.gif

 

Does anyone else have this problem?

I wish the acne were confined to my belly and backside, but no it creeps up the my face. The worst of it is where my bra runs.

My dh thinks it's fat heating up to metabolize and causing a lot of heat on the skin.  I have read that some hormones get trapped in the fat and are released as we loose weight.  I've been getting them in the boob area too and I really hate it.  :(  I've read it's worse where the clothes rub.
