No relation: If you've got an obsession with erotica that's interfering with the things you need to be doing in the process of becoming an adult, then your physician can be your guide. If dad's a reasonable guy, maybe you can talk with him. Your acne's not caused by your entertaining yourself, and you also owe it to yourself / your family has a duty to have your acne managed scientifically. ...Read more

How can i remove acne marks and stop pimples from coming back? I have acne pupules and oily skin.

Manage your acne: You're almost an adult. If topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician will need to add prescription-strength Rx. Keep doing this until your acne remits on its own. There is nothing you can do to speed its self-curing. Dark spots can be bleached but I'd advise you not to try; depressed scars need specialist intervention. ...Read more

Could ejaculating oftenly causes acne on the face?

No: There's no connection, beyond the fact that both are characteristic of most male teens. Enjoying your body in private won't harm your health; vary your technique, and think of something nice -- maybe the girl you'll marry -- rather than internet trash. If topical benzoyl peroxide doesn't clear your face in two weeks, get with your physician for prescription-strength rx. Enjoy who you are. ...Read more
