Can sleep apnea cause acne?
I've been dealing with acne for the past probably 3-4 years and just recently was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Nothing else has really worked for my acne so I'm wondering if a cpap machine for apnea may also help acne? Any relation? I do ALWAYS feel tired and somewhat depressed? And was told sleep apnea could cause this, I always blamed the depressed feeling on acne

I have not heard of read of a direct correlation of acne and apnea.
The only link I can guess at is that apnea depresses your immune system, which weakens your ability to fight infections.
