    Acne

    OK guys I am looking for some Over The Counter Meds to reduce or cure my acne. I am getting acne all over my back. I usually dont get acne but obvisously its cuz of my cycle. I am currently on 600 mg of Test en/ weekly and 300 mg of deca /weekly. I am currently on week 9 and I am doing a 12 week cycle. I am doing nolvadex , clomid and trib for pct.I am 185 pounds 5'9, 26 years old. I was about 165 so i am doing pretty good. Any suggestions of over the counter stuff. I have heard of accutane but thats only by prescription and i dont want to see a doc untill i am at least and the end of my pct. Thanks!

    try posting this in the spa forum or whatever its called. maybe use some antibiotics for no more than 10 days, tetracycline works pretty well.

    Apparently so, a bit harsh in the skin though. Make sure you shower twice a day and buy a back scrubber. Also get some Physohex or some other medicated wash to wash it with. Not sure where you are, but get some sun on it as well if you can.

    Yes it does, when I was a teenager I had acne really bad, I was put on Mysteclyn V which contains Tetracycline for five years. It fixed the problem.

    I had acne on my back and chest, my sister is a pharmacist, she recomended a back brush and TEATREA oil which can be found over the counter at most womens health shops, here in canada, I get it at a place called THE BODY SHOP. it either comes in a liquid or a bar of soap.

    that method cleared up my acne in a couple of days.

    No it doesnt unless you have very very mild acne and it also stains your teeth yellow, tetracyclean is old school, that is what they used in the 80's.

    If your dermatologist recoments it then find another one!

    I heard B5 is good, also drink lots of water.

    PEACE

    Accutane is the best but it messes you up. EXTREMELY dry skin and aching joints are just some of the things you will have to deal with. If you can get through the hard part, you wont have to worry about acne for a few years.

    I heard great things about B5 also, I just orderd 2 bottles so I will se if it works for me, I am on winny, EQ, and prop and my acne is getting horrible, im talking the type of zits that leave scars.

    From what I heard B5 works by keeping your body form secreating oil out of your skin so it works just like accutane (which I took when I was younger) but it is much safer and healthier to take. I think it help break down the fatty acids in your blood so it dosnt leak out into your skin. I hope it works.
