I also broke out. I rarely get acne im 26 and very rarely get acne after 3 runs of accutane.
I blamed it on starting a new job and stress. But then i remembered 2 weeks ago i had job interviews, and a speech at a wedding, just as stressful but no acne.
This also occurred 3 days into my new job, not the first few days, my skin. Only thing i changed was I added primrose oil.
I broke out on my nose, have not broke out on my nose in like 7 years.
I really wish this would have worked.
Just a note though my diagnoses is that I consume enough omega 6 already and gla. I cook and use alot of vegetable oil. For us people who do get enough, GLA becomes pro inflammatory taken to much. There are two studies and dr. lagne also stated you need to be very careful because it can become pro inflammatory. Now foods even recommends you dont take it over 6 months.
Now perhaps taking a low dose of primose oil would fix this, but im worried about the risks and it also causing acne.
Im not going to try evening primrose oil for now. I think i may down the line when this flare up the worst i had in years goes away. Perhaps the lower dosage would be ok. But im pretty sure i get enough omega 6 in my diet.
I think those of us who do get enough are having bad results since again it becomes pro inflammatory if we get to much.

I am currently taking 1 table spoon of grounded flax seed in the mornings with lots of water. Later in the day I take 1300mg 2x of evening primrose oil.

I didn't know that taking omega 3-6-9 with EPO might not be good until I read this thread. Maybe I'm getting to much GLAs. I don't know. I have been taking a 3-6-9 for over a year.
I'm going to discontinue the EPO and see if the acne clears up which I totally think it will!
EPO also makes me feel very dizzy sometimes, like if I take it on an empty stomach.
I really hope people come back to this thread and give more updates!

evening primrose oil has worked wonders for many people with acne.
However, please do not take internally if you have epilepsy/ seizures!!! It seriously triggers seizures.
I write on GLA oils for acne here. what worked for me *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules*

If you have trouble digesting oils, then it's best to just apply EPO topically.
