Is this a hormonal problem? My face get's really oily after sex/masturbating.

OK. First of all, I've tested this several times. I'd break out sooner or later after wanking. When I stayed clean for a month, I only got a few little pimples. I can feel that my face get's really oily after doing it and it pisses me off!

Is this a hormonal problem? I'm almost 20 and way past my puberty. What to do? I can't live without sex and with acne. I might as well go ahead and shoot myself.

edit: I think it's mostly my forehead that get's oily, not the whole face.

I"m not an expert in this area, but are you sure the oil isn't just from exertion (aka sweat)?

There hasn't been any link between acne and masturbation or sex.

Pretty sure. Only my forehead sweats? Anyway, sweat shouldn't cause acne...

I can deal with eating lots of vitamins, no carbs etc, but no sex.. Come on.

No sweat doesn't cause acne, but if you sweat, then don't wash your face...there is a lot of excretion just sitting on your face. That can irritate if you are sensitive.

I would suggest just washing your face afterward, see if that works for you.
