No.: Masturbation has absolutely nothing to do with pimple formation or treatment.
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 45 years experience
It does not: I'm sorry someone troubled you about this. Enjoying your body is part of being a healthy young man. If your current regimen of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin isn't sufficient, your physician may be able to offer something stronger.
