Can stress cause acne?

I have a new supervisor at work that is a real jerk. For the last three weeks he has picked apart the work of every person in my department. He is rude, has no manners and and has some kind of chauvanistic attitude. My department is all women and his demeanor towards us is so frustrating. I feel as though he is talking to me like I am a child and several of my co-workers feel the same. My face is now breaking out for no reason and one of the ladies at work suggested it could be from stress. Is that possible?

I think so. I know that I have more frequent breakouts when I'm feeling stressed or anxious about something. Sounds like your new boss is a real jerk for sure. I hope it gets better. :(
