Ive tried all three and they all give me cystic bumps but do help with my sebum output..My chin is a congested mess of built up sebum that i cant control...It is also dry and irritated..I read a good article on Omega 3 & 6's and their proper balance..my diet is good but i definetly dont get enough omega 3 and linoleic acid so my body is producing more oleic acid which is generally where the hard dry sebum plugs form from..What is another good essential fatty acid to take if i cant take fish oil, flaxseed oil or evening primrose oil? Anyone please?

hi
do you like salmon? or other fatty fishes they are a good sourse of omega 3's I think, I think we are supposed to shoot for 2-3 days a week.
I sent you a private message.

How do you KNOW that's what caused your breakout?

If you're someone that breaks out on a regular basis already you can't really know thats what caused it unless you were totally clear and then took fish oil or flax oil etc, and THEN broke out after you took is.............
Is that what happened?

Linoleic acid does not come from salmon, but rather from grapeseed or safflower oil.
alpha-linoleic acid comes from flax.

Fish oils can be rancid as can flax oil. Flax oil is probably better if it comes in a dark bottle and is immediately refrigerated, but polyunsaturated fatty acids in general are highly unstable. I could see that giving you pimples if you are ingesting oxidized PUFA.
