Hey Everyone! I know its been talked about a lot and I should have listened but I never had a problem with acne. But since I've ruptured a disc in my back I've been taking a lot of vicatin for the pain, and for what ever reason I've been breaking out as if I'm on a steroid cycle or something. Just looking for tips and suggestions on products to help rid them off me.
Thanks for the Help!

Topical Acetylcystine for Acne
Among the large variety of effects of acetylcysteine, several of them relate to cutaneous function in general and to sebaceous activity in particular. Due to the latter, a study was undertaken to investigate a possible effect of this substance in grade I acne. An analysis of the data from 99 patients in a double-blind study demonstrated that 5% acetylcysteine topical gel is significantly superior to placebo (P = .04) in reducing comedo counts. Comparable results were obtained in both sexes. This study indicates that acetylcysteine is an effective therapeutic option for the treatment of mild to moderate acne.

My son was having some acne issues (and over the counter meds were not helping)... so got him Acnedren from Black Lion Research.. seems to have worked wonders... (he is 17 so felt it was safe)

The acetylcysteine sounds interesting. For me, it was accutane back in the day. Maybe not the most safe, but I exhausted all other topicals and pills. I was at the point where my life was ruined, I refused to have a social life, etc. But i am extremely self coscious, even today,if I feel 1 pimple on my neck.. i hide at work! haha

Sulfur is a good cheap, safe acne treatment. I dissolve MSM in distilled water then put it in a little spray bottle then spray it into my hands and run it on my face...works for rosacea too which I have as well. Can't post links just msm+rosacea and sulfur+acne if you want sources

Does the sulfur treatment have the 'rotten egg' smell or do you mask it somehow?

Probiotics and Garlic has helped my body fight off bacterial infections, and has greatly reduced any remaining acne.
I've also loaded up with at least 600 mg of EPA and DHA from fish oil and flax seed oil for their anti-inflammatory response.

Thanks guys! The acnedral I got works, acne never been better and I get a couple hear and there but being that I'm on a lot of gear I will take it. It cleared up about week 2 on it and that's just taking 1 cap a day instead of 2

No worries, was curious if you had found something else is all... Like you my son's cleared up on less than the recommended dosage.
