    Any treatment for masturbation-acne in males?

    I know my acne is caused by ejaculation, and I've read posts of people who suffer of the same problem, and I don't understand how most of those medical websites deny the correlation between the two.

    I ALWAYS get acne after I ejaculate more than once a week, and it developes right after I am done, so there's nothing else that could have caused it other than ejaculation.

    Anyway, I am wondering if any of those who suffer of the same problem have found a cure for this? I've read about taking B5 -- some recommended taking 10grams of B5. will that work?

    My skin heals up faster when I don't masturbate and yes, I get clear within TWO weeks of no masturbation.
    My skin is sort of oily, however it gets REALLY oily after I am done masturbating.

    It may not cause acne for you, but it does for me, also if you search this forum, you'll find a lot of posts concerning acne and sexual activities.

    For me, sexual activities don't break me out, it's just the ejaculation process. grrr!

    Hello Avron,

    I really don't want to dismiss what you are saying, but I find it hard to accept that masturbation is the cause of your acne. There is no way that this could be so. Spots cannot develop immediately after masturbating.

    Do you only develop acne after masturbating or after sex too? If it is just masturbating, could it not be guilt and stress related to your feelings on masturbation bringing on the spots?

    But as you are a young man and highly unlikely to stop the diddling maybe it would be best to look at what treatments there are for your acne. Have you been to a dermatologist? If not, maybe that should be your best bet. I know that a lot of people here have had bad experiences with dermatologists, but accutane and the other treatments have helped a lot of people.

    I tried the B5 and it did not help one bit. I did a search of this forum and there are a lot of people who also found that it did not help. Albeit, there are a few whom it did help. However, we did all agree how expensive it worked out. I would be inclined to try the dermatologist first.

    Good luck, C.

    I also have done some reading on the subject and I believe it's a myth, or at least, there is no scientific evidence to prove it. You should try not masturbating for a couple of weeks and see if you clear up.

    I'd rather have acne than give up masturbation...not the point, I realize, but that's just me.

    I doubt its a myth.
    I took biology and there is definitely a link between testosterone and acne. Thus increasing 1 increases the other. Thats why people who take steroids usually get acne from it!

    It's not a myth at all, it's pretty solid science. Ejaculation -> raised testosterone -> raised DHT -> increased sebum production -> more acne.

    I can't believe some of you guys would choose masturbation over an acne free face.
    Masturbation is such a dirty practice.

    Life isn't all about sex, you're a pervert if you think it is.

    Wouldn't you rather have an acne free face so you can actually go out and find a girlfriend and enjoy so many other things rather than masturbating.

    your right but dont forget that we are men. Men are horny people, especially if your a teen. Having a girl would help i guess but that means you cant do anything with her.

    Well, at least try to go without it for a month.
    After you've gone through it, you'll feel better and you'll feel like you can do
    anything because giving up masturbatin is a hard thing to do.

    And once you've gone without it, you'll realize there is a whole world beyond sex.

    I have that same problem for a while I thought it was all in my head until I read this message. It was the first time I have ever heard of such a thing.
