Acne Breakout After One Year! Possible Causes Inside

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am new here. I found this great forum when I was trying to find an explanation for my acne breakout!

I live in Saudi Arabia and I've been having acne problems for almost 7 years. In February 2013, I moved to the US to study and decided to consult a dermatologist. I've been on Amoxicillin and I can tell that I've been improving a lot. For almost a year, I had almost no problems, especially with my left cheek. 3 weeks ago I came back to Saudi Arabia to visit and 4 days ago I had a breakout. This is annoying because finally my cheek looked very good and now when I have to meet friends I have a breakout! I do not know what caused the breakout.

I can tell 3 things changed when I came to Saudi Arabia 3 weeks ago. First, it is really hot in here! It is almost 120 degrees during the day and 90 at night. Also it is really humid. I rarely go out during the day but I always go out at night.

Second, I like spicy food! I ate spicy food three times since I came.

The third thing could be water? I was thinking maybe the water I take a shower in there is different than the water here! I don't know if this is possible but I am just considering everything. I like to take a shower in a warm water here in there.

Now, can humid weather, spicy food, and water be the reason behind my acne breakout? I am trying to find the reason to avoid having more pimples. The acne I have is deep and leaves scars.

Thank you :)
