Acne Meds 2

Ok so i get the impression that the minocycline will not really do anything for a deca sustanon stack, but I still have a benzoyl peroxide soap that has been prescribed by a derm and I believe has helped me out alot. Would this offset any heavy androgenic effects from the stack. Im starting to get pissed off when evryone tells me how much acne you get while juicin, but I have seen plenty of people in the gym in the 18-25 range who have taken roids and don’t have a single zit. there’s gotta be a way to bypass the zits or not all these people would be juicin up.

As far as soaps go, cetaphil puts out a good anti-bacterial soap that gets the job done but doesn’t dry you out like a lot of the others do…but maybe you’ll have more success w/ the one your doc prescribed.
Re:18-25 y/o not having acne, it’s more-less that these guys don’t have a predisposition for acne, thus they don’t have breakouts…however, there’s a teen at my gym that has the worst back acne I’ve ever seen and it’s most definitely been exacerbated by his AAS use.

Try reading The Acne Prescription by Nick Perricone MD. He gives a lot of inside out treatments such as supps and foods for adults and its all similar to a good training diet.

Acne is one of the worst things I have had to deal with in my life, so far. It started at a young age, and just wouldn’t leave me alone. Growing up I used EVERYTHING that there is out there. Nothing helped, untill…I started using Acutane. I took it for 4 months about a year ago, and so far (knock on wood) not a single one. That includes while on cycles.

I agree with MikeKatz that some people just don’t get them. It’s not in their genetics, or whatever.

I’m sure you’ve probably heard of Acutane. You could probably get it through your supplier (cheaper then through a doctor). Very hard on your liver, so cycling while on it will most likely kill you. Same goes with alcohol.

Neutrogena Oil free acne wash is a liquid soap that has always really helped me too. Put some on a pair of those rough shower gloves.

Hope some of this might help.
