On another board, former posters from acne.org such as MeetPete have had GREAT results with taking huge daily amounts of vitamin B5. I think it comes in liquid form, which is easier to ingest. I wish I knew how to post the link, but I'm retarded that way.

Yeah do what I did and go on accutane. Oil is what causes the acne so u really have to stop it. Even if u are not very broke out a lower dose of accutane may do the trick. fixed my prob. I really dont think there is anything else that is effective in stopping the oil but accutane. Also taking high doses of any vitamin is dangerous and for the most part more so than accutane would be.

thanks for the replies guys!

I think I will look into vitamin B5, because I really don't have any active acne so I don't think I should

go on accutane

Try Tazorac gel. My derm says it actually drys out the oil. I've used it for two days now and it works at keeping the oil at bay. But make sure you use the gel, not the cream.
