Drs belive that the relationship between acne&masturbation is myth, but the reality is you will always have some pimples after a day of masturbation !
I keep seeing this acne face mapping myth going around online. Where can I find information to debunk it?
Just ignore it: There's no need to spend time and energy looking for information to debunk a myth. It's up to the myth propagators to prove their beliefs, not up to the rest of the world to disprove them. Only if a myth starts to affect the rest of us, would we have to disprove it. Certain types and locations of acne may reflect certain causes, but there's no need for elaborate acne-mapping to figure that out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
This is a common myth and I am very confused. Are their any types of food that causes acne? Also, any obvious myth that you can reject?

Gels/creams for acne: For treatment of acne pimples, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or differin (adapalene) gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral contraceptives (for women) and oral antibiotics are options also. If acne pimples are severe, a dermatologist may prescribe accutane. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
