    Default Can anyone answer my question ?

    hi all ! What I'm curious to know is if adult acne is down to too much androgen hormone why do all people with adult acne not get hair loss too ? Why only some of them ? How can dht or androgens only affect the skin and not the hair or vice versa ?

    Acne and hair loss are neither down to simply high androgens, it's more about your genetic sensitivity to those androgens.

    Because it depends what you're sensitive to, acne works in a completely different way to hair loss.

    Could you explain how acne works differently to hairloss in sensitivity ? I have acne and hairloss due to suspected pcos but my androgens are normal .My symptoms only started 6 months ago .before this l had perfect skin and hair .Im finding it hard to cope with as l don't know what's causing it yet for certain and l have a bad case of acne all over face and body and diffuse hair loss .Every spot l get leaves a dark HYperpigmentation mark also which is really depressing me because l know how hard they are to get rid of.
