Sorry to hear this, we definitely know this can happen to some women going through the menopause.

ensure all your skin care and make up is non-comedogenic ie non-pore blocking. Strip skin care routines right back to a cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen. Try Salicyclic acid or benzyl peroxide containing products. Then if that doesn't help, see you doctor about adding in a vitamin A based cream (retinoid), azelaic acid or even oral treatments.

This can be fixed, so please do get help!
