    Huge Acne problem. Need effective solutions.

    Will not take accutane. But i need other solutions cuz its starting to give me dark blue scars everywhere

    Previous cycle: 500 test-e 1-10, 50 dbol 1-5
    PCT ended 3 weeks ago. hormonal fully restored proven by blood tests.





    Self Explanatory.

    BF estimation would be nice, too.

    5'9
    185 lbs

    Do a search there's plenty of threads about acne. I used proactive for my face. You need front pics for bf. Search.

    Cant do a bf estimate with your back only.... need front/back/ LEGS. Yes legs. The things most people don't train. HAHA

    I am not good with BF % estimating so don't ask me. Just saying though. Thats basically the criteria for it.

    I would get on accutane asap before the problem gets worse... i waited too long and now have a lot of scarring that will need acid peel treatments. 20mg/day until it subsides then 10mg/day maintenance. Those are low doses bro, not terrible on your liver.

    Accutane I would watch with. I have heard of some problems with it. I know many discuss it. I looked into it and here was the results:

    Lightbulb

    You can get a great acne treatment that we have been using effectively for quite awhile now. its made by platinum labz and its called acne annihilator. It works very well,,best thing we have witnessed that has zero side effects.

    I am also curious why you will not take accutane. Mine was horrible and I went on accutane 80 mg a day for a few weeks now it all gone. Yes there are side effects but 99% of the time the side effects all go away once the cycle is over, so its worth it. I would also mention that other things like benzol peroxide (proactiv), minocycline, other antibiotics, creams etc definately help but only to a certain extent. accutane is the only thing that really eliminates the acne for most bad acne cases.

    hormones going out of whack,

    and I don't get why most people just don't go to the tanning bed, 1-2 a week, keeps skin pretty dry and stops 90% of acne.

    Exilus when u were on ur cycle did u take arimidex ?

    Also for the other members do you think arimidex could have prevented this? Also maybe it could it have been u were taking 50mg a day of dbol for 5 weeks when I've heard by many souces that 4 is satisfactory. Do you even taking less dbol like 30 to 40 mg a day could prevent this? Any ideas guys?

    fatigue problems causing me problems working out properly. dont wanna make it worse. Plus im cycling dbol without liver protection so damaging it with accutane just before my next cycle doesnt sound like a good idea.

    Like more prone for depression. labido issues. oh so much more.

    Accutane wont solve it. Its a hormonal imbalance and your body is just going to have to take time to come back to homeostasis.

    I was afraid of accutane. I got some of the worst sides anyone could expect. Still one of the best decisions I ever made to take it. Although, my acne was not from aas. If you have acne that bad on your face as well then here is what I would do. 1) if you do not get acne unless you take aas, stop the aas. No amount of muscle will make you look better than a guy with a clear face. 2) If you get acne without aas as well, rethink accutane. In my experience.. everything else is a scam and will be more trouble than it is worth.

    What's the point of being huge if you can never take your shirt off?

    my goal is to scare people off, not attract em. Im more interested in getting rid of the pimples because they hurt than for esthetical wellbeing of random people who will look at me.

    I would take chrones over a face covered in acne 100% of the time. And no, it only exacerbates existing susceptibilities to that

    If you are serious with this statement, you have some serious issues. Steroids probably aren't the best idea for you.

    agreed.
    I had awful side effects but accutane but 100% worth it. and accutane WILL take care of acne caused by AAS..it deactivates the sebum glands...which are activated in part by fluctuating hormones.

    i dont get why people use tanning beds at all unless you like getting skin cancer. Even light usage is horrible.

    I'd be on Accutane. My back looked like that, but it was worse.

    Accutane cleared my back almost totally in around 8-10 weeks.

    20mg/EOD or ED to start.

    I am a very acne prone guy and is for the most part clear of it today. I have never used accutance but have seen some good results from my buddy who had bad face acne. The drug did come some side effects he was uncomfortable to look at for awhile lol , now all the chicks want his cock. I found that Arimidex and anti E drugs do help prevent acne but you must be prepared to use well afer cycle is done then slowy go of. can any one put science to this??

    Seems like a very small price to pay to gain weigth to me....no body ever sees me with my shirt off. but still, its just starting to hurt pretty bad. and im afraid it spread to my face cuz its all over my neck and on my arms. i even have it on my abs.

    I've been done with my PCT for 5 months now and I still breaking out. Not as bad as when I was on AAS but now the acne's starting to show up on my face not on my back. I've used two bottles of acne annihilator and it helped some. The problem is that my sebaceous glands are simply over active. All the topical stuff like benzyl peroxide just dries out the skin AFTER the acne has surfaced. Only stuff like accutane will stop the acne from forming. I've waited 5 months and have gone through all the topical stuff. I'm ready for accutane.

    Exilus,

    You're too young to start taking any form of cycles. Why not wait til' later?
    Either way I wish you good luck maybe Accutane can be a solution otherwise it could be your hormone imbalances, give it time to get back to balance. You'll be fine!

    My back looked quite bad like that becuase of the redness and inflamation. When that goes, your back will look 80% better. Mine did. After tanning, you can hardly see my scars. There like little white specs now.

    I'd suggest Accuatne at 20mg/ED now, washin g 2-3x day. Nizoral shampoo, washing the area EOD with it, leaving it on to soak for 3-5 mins. The rinse off.

    And finally, tanning 1x week.

    If you decide to use Accutane, dont tan.

    For me I use proactive... I used to have a bad problem with acne and starting my cycle really made my acne kick back in... I get my girlfriend to give it a treatment everyday and it helps a lot... I also found that swimming helps, the chlorine in the pool I imagine? but thats just my 2 cents and experience with my acne problems
