Question Creatine and Acne

Wondering how many of you have experienced acne breakouts on your face due to creatine. I know its possible to develop acne on your back and chest from creatine, but research has never shown it to be a cause of facial acne.

Any experineces would be greatly appreciated.

I found there was a correlation between the two. As soon as i would start back up on creatine my face would break out. I have done some readin on the internet and found that a lot of people are complaining about this.

Good Luck

Creatine made me break out horribly and the breakout lasted months because the cysts would not go away causing more inflammation.
