I am a 49yr old woman who is not on any medication but has developed acne but has never had it before, even as a teen. Whats going on?

It may be caused by hormonal factors like androgens, which come from the adrenal glands or the ovaries. Another cause may be the cosmetics that you use like cleansers, makeup, hair products or moisturizers. Check out http://acne.about.com/od/adultsacne/f/adultacne.htm for more information.

Yup, RegeeMut is right. Hormones was my first thought also.
