    Yes antibiotics worked for me too. But like you said, they are bad overall for you since they kill bad AND good bacteria in your gut. I’m trying to clear it naturally. We shouldn’t need some silly medicine, even though yes that medicine did work in the past for you and me. It doesn’t solve the PMO issue which leads to innumerable health problems

    Yep, but stopping PMO won't get rid of an infection necessarily. I was on a 100 day streak and my acne didn't go away. Does PMO contribute/cause PMO, yes, it probably does. But in order to get rid of it, one must treat it AND stop PMO.

    Ok I’ll keep that in mind. But from days 70-89 now, I have seen tremendous rapid improvement. I feel like in another month it will be pretty much clear man. but only time will tell. I’ll keep updating

    Hi i dont usually post much on here but i logged in just to post here and help you.

    I had acne as a kid and thought that was part of growing up. In my mid 20's i noticed i still had acne.... it turned out it had nothing to do with puberty but 100% on my diet.

    It turned out that dairy , sweets, and nuts caused me to get acne.. If i cut it out completely my face is 100% clear. I can also eat a bit of sweets dairy or nuts ...for example have a slice or two of pizza per week is fine. Few nuts a week is fine... one or two cookies per week is fine (cant have all of those in a week). But if i eat whole medium-larkge pizza i will literally get acne in 2-3 days. I have proven this to my mom who didnt believe me and said it was all in my head... i had clear face and i ordered whole pizza ate it and told my mom watch 2-3 days later i will have acne. Sure enough 2-3 days late i had big red pimples on my face and ever since then my mom believed me.

    Try cutting out above 3 foods for a month and see how it works for you...if your acne doesnt go away then it may be some other food alergy but if you do google reserrch on acne and dairy , acne and sweets, and acne and nuts you will see many people have the same issue.

    Good Luck

    Thanks bro I appreciate you taking the effort to post this. Hmmm I feel like it is part diet and part nofap that are main contributors for skin. But how did nofap effect you. Did you ever last 90 days?

    During school year acne was bad. I did eat a lot of pizza during the school year (I have only eaten pizza once since School year). I didn’t eat any nuts during school year. I ate some sweets here and there but not too much. I didn’t eat dairy or drink any milk(except for açaí bowls which contains yogurt) during school year. Do eggs count as dairy?? The pizza could be a culprit but I think the main thing for me is nofap that has helped. But you are right staying away from this foods will also help

    about acne, i once told by a cosmetician that fatty foods cause acne, since the acne is that oily sebum that removes dead cells and grease the hair, it is mainly composed of triglycerides, excess of it cause acne. today i pretty sure she was right, but the list of foods she told me to avoid eating in order to decrease acne, i'm also pretty sure it's wrong. i agree that fat cause more acne, but eating natural fats like butter and cheese has nothing to do with that.
    only one thing i suggest you since fat doesn't make you fat but carbs do. when you consume carbohydrates in any form your body increases the insulin level to deal with excess of glucose in the blood, the insulin triggers triglycerides synthesis and fat storage.
    so you have to switch your diet to more fat and meat, less sugar and crabs. to be honest i never tried so maybe you will consider testing it.
    best of luck

    I've done a lot of research, and I believe the improvement is due to your thyroid gland getting under control. Addiction -> increased stress hormones -> faulty thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is responsible for regulating oil production in your glands and is involved in hair production. I believe the hormones rebalancing, and thus the thyroid stabilizing, is what causes all skin and hair problems to significantly reduce or disappear entirely.

    Thus, I dont believe it is the masturbation that causes the acne, but the addiction related brain changes caused by the rapid dopamine levels induced by porn that do. This is why we dont see people who are regularly having sex have acne problems.

    Quit dairy my friend. It's unnatural to be drinking another animals breast milk - we're not baby cows.
    Dehydration is also a key factor - that's why people break out after boozey nights, so keep hydrated.

    Update guys! Day 120 of no MO.
    Skin has slowly been getting better. What's super annoying is that I get breakouts after wetdreams!!!
    After every wetdream (which for me occurs every 10-20 days), the next few days i breakout.

    So i guess this is proof that ejaculation causes acne for some like me.
    I think by 6 months time, my skin will be totally clear. I will keep y'all posted

    I'm a 50-year-old man, who's had acne since my teens. Having "oily/greasy" skin is a predisposition for me – a curse through most of my life since age 12, and finally now, a blessing. I know how upsetting and confidence-sapping it can be. I was so self-conscious for so many years. After reading through your thread, I'm not doing to teach you how to suck eggs, because you've tried everything – and NoFap now seems to be working for you (yay!).

    What worked for me (as well as NoFap) is not using any harsh, anti-biotic, anti-bacterial soaps, tonics or creams (tried all those). Having quite "oily" skin, I used products for oily skin – attempting to "dry my skin out". The body is clever than that – if you try and dry your skin out, it produces more oil – and causes more problems. Today I use a Simple Moisturising facewash, and my skin has improved markedly. I even moisturize my skin occasionally, if it ever feels a bit tight or dry. I also try and get as much vitamin D (sunshine) as possible, this helps. Cold showers also seem to have made a positive impact.

    So why the blessing? Hitting 50, it's pretty obvious my skin is younger looking than most of my mates – I've got far fewer lines/wrinkles :)

    Good luck on your NoFap journey, you're going amazingly at 121 days. Fantastic stuff.

    Interesting. So are you saying if you have sex you’ll breakout too?
    Do you stress about your wet dreams because you consider it a relapse? Maybe it’s the stress from the wet dream itself and not the ejaculation. Because we don’t seem to see people who go from pmo to healthy sex lives reporting that their acne returns. It always seems to happen when they do something they don’t want (wet dream, relapse), and this induces stress, which could in turn cause acne

    Nah i don't think sex would cause acne which seems weird. But somehow during sex (i think because of much higher oxytocin levels), most people that i've seen that get acne induced my masturbation do not get acne when having sex. This is what i have seen. Although there are a small minority of people who get acne after both M and S

    Have you tried different soaps and cleansers? Your skin might be sensitive to something in whatever soap you're using. I'm not saying hormones have nothing to do with acne issues, but skin sensitivities could be exacerbating it.

    My skin has issues with artificial colors and fragrances. My skin seems to like traditional plain lye soap, such as Grandma's by Remwood Products (not an employee, affiliate, or paid endorser, just a happy customer), and laundry detergents and fabric sheets without dyes or fragrances ("Free and Clear", which several brands make).

    You right man. I took antibiotics for a couple of years and while it did clear up my skin, i wished i just cleared it naturally with nofap.

    I think this is why it's taking longer for my skin to fully clear, because most everyone else reports skin clearing from nofap within 45-70 days
