Bacne and b5
Jan 31, 2003
I am a male over thirty who is still getting acne, but in much different places. At age 19 my acne on my back and chest became severe enough that it hurt to wear a shirt! My face was not that bad but still moderate enough where after many antibiotic regiments I tried Accutane. I stayed on accutane for about three months and quit early because of the side effects dry skin,lips and nose bleeds! Even though I quit early, it worked.Ten years later,face still cleared, no problems there, but now my buttocks and waistline and between my legs have really flared up in the past couple of years. These are the cystic type that are painful and constantly irritated by clothes,underwear etc. I have been back to the doctor and put on a combo of antibiotics that clears "90%" of patients. Not true. I clear up while on them, but within a week off of the them I flare up again. I recently heard about b5 and ordered Randall,s brand 1000 mg b5. Has anybody used b5 for acne in these areas of the body? I plan on taking 3 grams a day and see what happens. I hear about initial breakouts and worry I may 'wake' up acne from the past face, back,etc.
