Everytime I masturbate I am getting acne in face. Any specific reasons, how shall I tackle it?

Unrelated: Enjoying your body isn't going to cause acne, and you're seeing a pattern where there almost certainly isn't any. Topical benzoyl peroxide is your initial treatment. If you are not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription medication. All acne can be managed scientifically. Best wishes. ...Read more

Sir, I am 18 year old guy. The day I masturbate, I develop acnes on my face and some on back. Please help..

Scientific Rx: Your acne may flare because you sweat when you get excited, but enjoying your body isn't the cause. You deserve both to feel comfortable about your emerging manhood, and to have effective acne treatment. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, your physician can decide if you are a candidate for topical clindamycin, systemic tetracycline, or something else. ...Read more

I have too many acne due to masturbation how to clean my face?

Entirely unrelated: I'm not sure where the notion came to you that eruptions of acne on the face and masturbation are related as cause and effect. There is no such connection. Good facial hygiene with a mild soap and water is an excellent form of cleansing and prevention of rogue outbreaks of acne. If infections complicate then, see your doctor for medication recommendations. ...Read more

Sir, it's true that ejaculation due masturbation or sex is the cause for acne or pimples on face?

Sir, it's true that ejaculation due masturbation or sex is the cause for acne or pimples on face?

No: It would be difficult to find a control group, but this is something that was made up to frighten young men. Enjoying your body won't make you pimply, short, stupid, hairy, smooth, an unfit husband / father, mentally ill, blind, or unspiritual. It prepares you for adult life. Why not think about that one special person in your future, instead of internet trash? Best wishes. ...Read more

Moisturize/sunscreen: Use an oil-free moisturizer and a good sunscreen, EVERY day!

What to do if I have acne on my face, shoulder, arms, back and chest which make me scared and I think this is because of excessive masturbate plzzzzzzz help?

Scientific Rx: Enjoying your body isn't the cause of your acne. I'm sorry that someone deceived you. Acne on your trunk isn't going to respond well to anything short of systemic treatment. Probably your physician will start with a systemic antibiotic plus topical benzoyl peroxide. If this does not work, you may be a candidate for isotretinoin. It's not for the faint-hearted but it's highly effective. ...Read more
