    Great info, from everyone. Omega-3, is the best...I'm showing a difference overall and I've only taken it for 3 days. Those clear-liquid cysts have went down and no new ones are showing up. I usually get them on my cheeks and jawline. Hoping, the results remain consistant. Bravo - to everyone experiences and great advice....
    Thank heaven, for these boards.....-Ornament

    OK...I'm giving this a try because the sides of my chin are driving me crazy!!! Just bought Jamieson Omega-3 Triple Fish Oil Blend -1000 mg (EPA 400mg\DHA 200mg) 3 pills a day. I'm already taking Minocycline plus Differin gel so I hope with the fish oil I'll really get GREAT results. Taking my first pills tonight...I'll keep everyone posted

    I got mine at Kroger. The good thing I think about getting it there is that Kroger will often run a special on it for buy one get one free on the Nature Made brand. You can't beat that if you ask me!! I have now been taking Omega-3 fish oil for a while now and I am still so happy with the results. Good luck to everyone who tries it and I am so happy that boards like this exist!!! Thanks again!!!

    I was just doing more reading on Omega 3's and came across some posts stating that some people get breakouts when starting fish oil. Has anyone brokeout more due to fish oil? How soon have you seen results after taking fish oil?

    I personally have not broken out more since using fish oil but I can not speak for everyone. I noticed results within the first week of taking it but really started seeing some about two-three weeks into it. That's another thing I like about it, you see results fairly quickly and it keeps you from getting as discouraged. Hope this helps!

    Hi Sweetlily,
    How soon did you see results with fish oil pills on your face? Do fish oil pills also help with marks left from acne?
    Do you use anything else for your arms? Topical Creams?

    Re: OMG i just dicovered Omega-3 fish oil!!!, the best thing since sliced bread!!!

    Has anyone started Omega 3 fish oil since discovering it in this thread? Any results? I started a little over a week ago, can't say I see any improvements yet, I still get small pimples on my chin (better then the cysts!)
    Post any results!

    Thumbs up Re: OMG i just dicovered Omega-3 fish oil!!!, the best thing since sliced bread!!!

    Yes, I have been on it for about a week now, and i'm definately noticing my scars are fading and my redness has gone down. I haven't gotten new zits either. I think I owe it to this too! I have had bad bad bad acne forever! I have a lot of scars from it. So this me saying try it- try it! If you have already used everything before, why not?

    Thanks for the post!

    Re: OMG i just dicovered Omega-3 fish oil!!!, the best thing since sliced bread!!!

    Hi,

    I started taking Omega-3 about 2 months ago and I'm not sure if it's helping or not. Most of my face looks okay--some small pimples here and there but not too bad--but my chin is breaking out in cysts like crazy. I also switched about 5 months ago from Diane 35 to Yasmin so I don't know if it's the Yasmin thing or if the fish oil is breaking me out.

    Has anyone had a similar experience with breaking out from fish oil?

    I found this thread, bought the Omega-3 from Sam's club as mentioned in a previous post, have been taking one pill a day with my breakfast for one week today and have not had any new acne! My problem area is on my forehead. I always have a cluster of bumps or one or two bad zits pop up, sometimes cyst like, but ever since I started the omega my forehead looks great!
