    When does acne usually hit you guys?

    I'm coming to a close with a 12 week run of Deca @400mg/Sust@500mg. Currently 2 weeks after last shot (taking Winny@50mg ED until 3rd week when I begin clomid therapy).

    Just curious - when do you bro's usually get hit with the nasty acne? I haven't had a single zit throughout this entire cycle and kinda dreading when I take clomid incase that's when the acne will flair up. I'm actually kinda surprised since my skin is normally oily even without the AS...but while on cycle I was using face wash on face/neck/back twice a day just incase, seems to have worked...?

    So, and I know I'm probably beggin for a flame here, what is the result if you DON'T take clomid? (other than shrinking like a little girl) Do you avoid this zit festival?

    OR - is there any difference with substituting Nolva for clomid?

    I know, I'm being anal here, but have really enjoyed not having any zits during this cycle and would love to keep it that way... depending on the cost of course (would rather keep my gains and suffer a few weeks of whiteheads than the alternative)

    Don't avoid clomid. Best advise I can give is
    1. 2 showers a day
    2. Loupha sponge scrub
    3. Foaming cleanser after scrubbing with regualr soap in botha showers
    4. The place I Pm'd you a few minutes ago-Get some Accutane Gel when you make your other order and use it. It worked wonders on my acne

    definently post cycle

    acne sorta declined at the start of cycle, slowly got little worse toward end of cycle, then got real bad post cycle...

    this product works wonders for my acne, but requires RX:

    Tazorac (tazarotene topical gel 0.05%)

    tanning also helps too, but don't go overboard with the tanning

    Alright - no way to avoid... gotchya. Guess it's better to be mentally prep'd for this type of nasty onslaught. Time to stop wearing white t-shirts to the gym I guess

    Thx everyone - I'll pickup some gel "just incase" <crossing fingers as I get ready to chomp on some clomid>

    i didn't get shit on my face... mainly my back...

    and for me it only appeared on places i could reach... usually you have the tendency to pick at it or pop them, but that makes it worse... thats probably one reason why mine got kind of bad

    My acne starts about 5 weeks into the cycle and lasts until about 8 weeks after the cycle is done. Only in wierd places though like back and arms and even one or two on my legs, almost never on my face. But I guess thats a good thing, better somewhere that is usually covered up.

    I started taking doxycycline pills (script required) in my 4th week of a cycle when acne appeared on my face a bit. I also shower twice a day and still got acne on my shoulders/chest/back toward the end of the cycle. This shit helped a lot though. PM if you want more info on it.

    I had relatively clear skin throughout both of my cycles, but when that clomid starts....acne begins...and has stayed with me oh, about 5 months now .....my last cycle ended in late dec. 2002....i blame the enanthate and tren .....my first cycle was sust/eq/winny, and the post cycle acne was nothing compared to now

    When I woke up this morning, I saw that the Acne Fairy had come in my sleep. Man, my stomach, upper arms, and back have HUNDREDS of spots! Seems to be in all the areas where my shirt was sticking to me while I was sweating like a pig during Friday's workout. Great, I'm 46 years old and I've got more zits now than I ever had as an adolescent. I hope this doesn't mean I'm in for another spurt of new body hair growth.

    At least none of it is in areas that show when I'm dressed...

    Oh, I'm in week 11 of an enan/deca /proviron cycle, which will wrap up with five weeks of winny. Haven't started the winny yet.

    Well, one day later they don't look quite so scary. No new eruptions since then. These are all just red bumps, no whiteheads. So maybe it's not a trend after all.

    How pricey is accutane? Any sides? Any issues for middle-aged adults?

    Well I hope I'm one of the lucky ones here... I've had like zero acne so far and pray it'll stay that way. I start the ole clomid tomorrow along with anti-bacterial soap, back scrubs, exfoliating stuff, facial cleansers, stridex pads and some anti-acne gel on the way from the ole border....hahaha, if acne shows its ugly head I'LL BE READY WITH ANTI-A'S!

    for those with serious problems, accutane is extremely effective, but there are side effects with it....there's always a cost to everything...I also find, to those posts about test being the worst for acne, is that the cleaner the juice the less acne. I had a few bottles of enth from the local pharmacy, human grade stuff. So pure and clean, no pain, no acne, only nice gains. Then I popped in some dirty test, and bamm, acne, and pain around the injection site (plus a lump the size of a tennis ball) ...I think the cleaner it is, the better.. We need more labs producing higher grade stuff.
