Question

Answer
Acne is often caused by bacteria living in your skin.  Sometimes it can be treated topically (by applying something to the skin); sometimes a doctor prescribes a pill that you take.  Having sex or not having sex will not make any difference in having acne.  If you want to become sexually active again, then take precautions pertaining to birth control and sexually transmitted diseases first.
