Sweat and acne.

I posted this under a different forum to begin with but got no replies. I thought i would try here. Any information would be great. Thanks...

...Hi. I just started accutane a few days ago due to my extremely persistent acne. Its the last straw for me and im really hoping it will pull through. Im a dancer so i sweat pretty much all day. My mom isnt sure how much my skin is ever going to clear up due to the fact that i sweat so much, but i havent heard much about sweat while looking over everyones topics. Does sweat make acne worse?...does is have any correlation at all? Thanks!

Apparently sweat is actually good for the skin and has nothing to do with the production of acne, as far as I know. I find though that the stress on the body from exercise makes me get acne, thats just my opinion. Don't take any of my words to heart, I'm probably wrong!

I really don't know, but i have heard it both ways. That it potentially helps because it cleans our the pores, or that it makes it worse.

I realize that this is goign to help none at all, but I am posting it anyways.....
