I have acne and oily skin are these related to PCOS/PCOD?

It Could be, Acne is one of the most common symptoms of PCOS, and too much testosterone in the body can be generated by other hormonal conditions. This can increase sebum development and the production of skin cells, contributing to acne. In areas that are usually considered “hormonally sensitive,” especially the lower third of the face, PCOS-related acne tends to flare. Your cheeks, jawline, chin, and upper neck are included in this. High levels of testosterone called androgens are one of the key effects of PCOS. Androgens play an important role in the development of acne. They cause an excess of an oily substance called sebum to be generated by the glands in the skin. When sebum and dead skin cells build up within hair follicles, acne occurs, trapping bacteria under the skin.
