I've seen Ronnie up close as well as Flex Wheeler, back in the day, and they both had some acne, not much but some break outs. With that being said, they can easily afford treatments, such as most others, to get rid of it.
When I would get it, I could take RetinA for 4 weeks and have it completely gone. Some people have to use it for 8-12 weeks.

you can all at once or twice a week, the net effective difference is pretty small. you should with good dietary control gain a nice solid 12-15lbs on that, while leaning out a little. In the end adding or losing fat is more about diet control. Its part of why so many guys recommend higher doses of anabolics, the more anabolic in you the sloppier your diet can be and still get good results.

that will work. gains tend to slow after week 8 or so anyhow, so it won't hurt

You can tell the guys at my gym that are using... acne all over, mainly their back... and one guy has it all over his arms to (but he shaves which can cause that as well) but man... a lot of them have such bad scarring... not worth it imo to get that big yet have nasty looking skin lol, least get on some antibiotics or something to help/clear it up.

But anabolics almost always give me body acne, and never facial acne. Maybe one or two random spots on the face, but basically nothing. Also, it seems like it's mostly PH's and DS's that do it to me, not test and such.

I have this big nasty zit on my left shoulder. I think I'm just gonna cut it off and be done with it....

Orals that convert into unnaturally occuring hormones do strange & unpredictable things to different hormones with me though..
For example, epistane at normal doses is totally fine, but at higher doses, causes my E2 to greatly elevate (which is strange considering how it works) and causes acne, even on my chest, which I rarely ever get.
I don't really touch 19-nor's very often (if at all anymore), only tried it at a lower dose a couple times, but deca caused a small amount of acne for me, in strange places where I'd never had it before.

I get tiny blackhead zits all over my upper tricep/bicep area and all over my back. Tiny hard blackheads. Very small like a rash, but not big swollen red acne.
