Do I have a bigger chance of acne coming back since I sweat alot?

I have one more week left on accutane.
I work out alot and am into sports.
I havent really been able to workout and participated in the sports i love the past 7 months casue ive been so fatigue and tired on accutane...

Once im done with accutane next week , am I subjected with a higher percentage of getting the acne back since i'll be sweating alot again and havent really sweated hard in about 7 months ??

I really need to jump back into it again im so outta shape from being fatigue and depressed on accutane...

any help is greatly appreciated
thanks

Hi,
I had a similar experience on Accutane, it made me very tired and deppressed. Once I finished my treatment I started working out again and I did notice that the acne would flare up again every now and then when I would sweat alot , but not bad at all compared to what it was like before, just make sure to wash right after your workouts and avoid Iodized salt ( very important ), it has been proven that Iodine is excreted out of your pores through sweat and can aggravate acne, also avoid supplements and multi-vitamines that contain Iodine. Good luck!

Just make sure that you wash your face after you work out and if you can't wash your face with a facial cleanser because your at some gym, make sure that you at least rinse your face off of the dirt and sweat, then when you get home, wash it correctly.
