    On cycle acne

    I'm curious who here get's acne where at, how bad while on cycle? I'm planing on running 500mg per weeks of test e and am worried about acne. Think I can handle it as long as my face don't brake out.

    Growing up I had a little here and there but was lucky and never had it real bad. My sister, uncle, and my father where not so lucky and had it real bad growing up. As long as I can remember I have always taken two showers aday (morning, evening) cause I was scared I'd get bad acne like a few of my family members.

    Is there anything I can do to help prevent acne while on cycle? Or is it just a trial error type of thing? This is a huge concern for me and I will appreciate all the info I receive.

    It's just one of those things. Either you get it or you don't. I know that doesn't help you too much, but no one can tell you if you are going to get acne or not, or how bad. Sorry...

    There are some things you can take for it, but i don't worry about that stuff, so I can't recommend anything. Do a little research, you'll find something.

    Use an anti bacterial soap on your whole body. I got it this cycle but it got a lot better after I started using the soap. I had a small break out in my face but it might have been from me using the wrong lotion on my face. I've never had acne issues growing up either. I even tried accutane but it was drying me out too much so I stopped taking it but I can tell it got better in the short time I did use it. I've heard tanning works well too. Never tried it though. Use the soap that most people use for their face but use on your whole body. Shower immediately after exercising as well. If you're taking test, you'll get oily throughout the day.

    I use acne face soap on a daily base already. I will pick up some anti bacterial soap and start using that as body wash. I may go ahead and buy some accutane just to have on hand.

    So I did a google image search on "acne caused by steroids" and OMFG is that for real? Do the search and you will see what im talking abt.

    James, I had acne bad as a teen and took accutane in early 20s as well. I seemed to break out AFTER the cycle, something I'm guessing would be caused from higher estrogen levels. On cycle, I was relatively clear. Weird huh?

    Anyway, I understand your stress. I also would wash my hands really good, and then take really warm almost hot water and just rinse my face off. This removed the oil and made my skin feel a ton better. DO NOT dry with a paper towel or regular towel. Just air dry.

    I have tried Dawn dishwashign soap on back zits and shoulder zits. Just a small amount left on overnight. It dried those suckers out but also made the skin red and irritable. Hope this helps.

    i get on my back but for me its worse after cycle than it is on cycle. While Im on cycle aromasin 25mg/day works really well to get my back clear. I find novaldex breaks me out the worst as far as PCT drugs go.

    If you have insurance bro go to the dermatologist and get Accutane that shit clears you right up. its a strong as medication but it works. I made the mistake of doing 1000mg of test a week and I brokeout really bad so bad that i got it all over my chest, neck, back and face. so go right away before it gets worse. test E last a long time in your system so you need to counter the effects of test.

    They commonly prescribe too high a dose even though the low dose trials prove it works. 20mg daily is all you need. Side effects are dose dependant so the less you use the lower the side effects.

    i have taken accutane before...yes it cleared up the acne but im not sure it was even worth it. my skin and lips became extremely dry. i remember layers of skin peeling off my lips. my skin was very photosensitive. i have a dark complexion naturally and i would be burnt to a crisp from being in the sun for 30 min. my scalp also became very dry and itchy. my doctor also made me get a hepatic function panel or LFTs drawn every month bc its liver toxic...so might not be a good idea if ur already on other gear. I took mine in my puberty years. i would say maybe the side effects were just me but almost all of my friends were on it and had the same exact sides. so once again yes it clears up acne but i would try other dermatological products first.

    Years ago they prescribed high doses of Acutanne which caused many side effects. I have run Accutane at 20mg daily with the only side being dry lips. Low dose Acutanne is great.

    I imagine they had you taking much higher doses as this was common.
