    I got the same problem when using Sust. I broke out really bad on my chest, shoulder, and back. Iím normally not prone to acne, so I didnít feel the need to go on Acutane for such a short period of time. Also Acutane is known to be some pretty serious stuff (side effects) so taking that kind of chance wasnít in the cards. I started swabbing the area with alcohol in order to clean the majority of the oil and dirt out of my pores. I also started hitting the tanning bed about 3 times a week in order to dry it up a little. These helped a little, but I was still getting worse. I saw my family physician and he told me that I would need some form of antibiotic in order to clear this up. Because the acne I was getting was not regular, (small red pimples, that was empty. You could squeeze the hell out of them and get nothing. More rash looking than acne) he said that no matter how much I washed the area, it would not prevent further outbreak. He originally was going to prescribe me Tetracyclene, but because it increases ones sensitivity to UV rays, it would make tanning undesirable. He finally prescribed me a product called Staticin. It spreads on like a lotion. It feels and smells kind of like bug spray.

    The medicinal Ingredients in it are as follows:
    Erythromycin 1.5% w/v
    Ethyl alcohol 55.0% v/v
    Laureth-4 6.0% w/v
    The non-medicinal Ingredients are:
    Propylene glycol

    For the most part it has worked quit well so far. I have noticed the areas starting to clear up, but it itches like hell. In reality though, Iím probably going to have to put up with most of it until the A/S works its way out of my system.

    UGH, not only do I get it bad, me & my brother both have this skin thing that makes us get heat rashes, but it's like an acne heat rash. I forget what the dermatologist called it...anyway, I use alcohol, the same stuff I clean my injection area with. It really dries up the skin and clear up acne, but you have to use it a few times a day.
