PCOS can cause outward changes that draw unwanted attention. Acne and facial hair are two difficult symptoms of PCOS. The hormonal changes that cause hirsutism (excessive dark, coarse hair on body areas where hair isn't typical — usually the face, chest, and back) and acne are difficult to address. Support becomes essential when dealing with these PCOS symptoms.
