Hmm, how strange....

I noticed the opposite. When I am sick, my acne for the most part seems to clear up a bit, and look a lot less inflamed.

I get that too. I assume it's just elevated biological stress, antibodies too busy fighting other pathogens to deal with acne.

Yes. Being sick does drain a lot of nutrients, vitamin C included, and most probably others. Stay nourished during times of sickness to ward of disease and keep your skin in shape too :) Good luck

Try and be healthier.

perhaps immune system cant fight off acne as well now, so now bacteria creates more inflammation and infection.
