    :wtf:

    For the past two months or so my face has been breaking out, in the same exact spots frequently.

    I never had an issue with acne growing up or anything. I couldn't figure out what it was.

    I ran out of fish oil, haven't taken any for a week and now my face is clearing up, :wtf:

    I thought fishoil was supposed to help acne if anything?

    I notice that when I am good about taking my fish oil I get tons of gross earwax. TMI? Maybe.

    Usually works the opposite way. Most people's skin improves while taking it. It might make your skin more oily because it is great for dry and flaky skin. You might want to change skincare regime to deal with more oil rather than dry skin.

    It also improves your hair. We started giving it to my dog because she had dry itchy skin and after about a month her coat was thicker, glossier etc

    :dunno:

    Did you stop taking anything else at the same time? ZMA maybe? Sounds backwards.

    Nope, the only other thing in my daily routine/diet that changed is I've been playing a lot of COD4 lately :mamoru:

    Did your hairline go back to normal as well?

    That's strange.

    Get back on the fishoil now that you're cleared up and see if you break out again. If you do, then it's for sure the fishoil.

    What's really strange is I've been taking fishoil for almost a year.

    A month ago I switched brands, but I started breaking out two months ago :dunno:

    I'm going to let it clear up 100% and then get back on it and see what happens.
