Well, not sure where you are. But in the states, you can get zinc supplements at any corner pharmacy / drug store. You could buy some online if it resorts to that.

I'm sexually active and I take zinc. I too definitely notice more breakouts when I'm intimate. The zinc has seemed to curb it somewhat. Although I'm on antibiotics and Dan's regimen as well so can't say definitely with all these variables.

It's incredibly easy to get a zinc supplement over the counter if you're in the USA. Just go to your nearest health food store or supplement supplier. You don't need a doctor's prescription. Where do you live?

Nah, I don't believe in the zinc theory. Sorry, it's just not that simple. It's all about the hormones, not a simple mineral called zinc.

I tried the 20 day w/o masturbation thing. The thing is we might even produce more testosterone when you're preoccupied with sex and can't release. It didn't work for me.

And really, even if it did work, you can't go without masturbating for long. lol. It will tell you something tho. it will confirm that acne is probably b/c of too much testosterone if you didn't break out. So do the experiment if u want, but do it so you know what your imbalance is =)

Ok, go ahead, try it and see what happens. It doesn't hurt at all. Tells us what you find. I tried this for 20 days and found that I still broke out.

I used to think that to but at the time I was stressing about everything and thinking everything caused acne. Not to mention I was thinking my diet didnt play a roll in acne since my stupid idiot derm told me it had no affect on acne.


personally after doing so man y different things...Water theory, caveman thoery, not doing jack about acne theory, Zinc, b5, not jacking off...I've done all this.


And from my experience masturbation doesnt really trigger acne. I dont think there is a direct connection like not getting enough sleep and eating junk and dairy.

Dont answer me "its not real" or "its the age" -_-' its not true. Masturbation causes acne on me and a lot of other peoples. I have read Hundreds of topic and forums with this problem : after masturbation, pimples go out on skin after about 24 hours; if not masturbate, there are no pimples.

I have this problem too and i havent found the right cure after years to dermatologies and a lot of therapies. I am 20 and i have this problem since 11.

I know that it's not possible cure this problem, but i wanna know only why there is a problem like this in a lot of people ? what is the cause?



Sorry for bad english eusa_whistle.gif

When a person masturbates severel hormones are released one of them being prolactin. Prolactin causes acne in hormone sensitive people.

Sex involves more than one person, who responsibly uses a condom for protection from disease transmission and accidental impregnation.

Well, when I don't um, take care of things, then my acne gets worse. I think it has something to do with relieving my stress.

Lol too funny.. Ya i doubt masturbation causes acne. That is the same as saying sex causes acne. or masturbating causes hair on your palms.


It would suck if your wife or gf is horny every day!

We all different! If masturbating really causes acne then everyone in the world would have gotten zits on their face.

but we are not all the same. For example : my uncle can't eat cherries because he is allergic to that fruit but i can eat them and my father too. This for sayin that if a thing hurts me, doesnt mean that can hurt you. I have the same problem. After masturbation or sexual activity, my pimples break out after a little of time : about a pair of hours. If i don't masturbate, my skin is clean and without pimples. I am 20 and i am experiment this since 10 years. It's the thruth.

I have did a lot of dermatological cures : pills, creams, medicines, etc....but they havent solve this problem. It means that that isnt a dermatologically problem but it's internal, hormonal or something like this. I hope to find a cure about this; because it's an horrible thing that doesnt let to live a normal life.
