Addicted to masturbation, causing acne with scars leaving behind. Are these both related?

I am 16 and kind of addicted to masturbation. It was kind of a regular (daily) activity a couple of years ago, but now I am trying to lower it down. The problem is the acne . And the scars left behind the ones which have gone away. They sort of regenerate whenever I masturbate after a short or long break. I haven t tried a lot of medications or experiments on the skin. Just regular herbal face wash. I just wanted to know if there is any kind of relation between this act and acne, and also whether it has any other symptoms or side effects or not. Also how can I cleanse my facial skin from the scars and acne?

Hello Vaibhav..

First of all remove all myths & misconceptions from your mind about masturbation.
In fact, Masturbation is completely normal & doesn't have any bad effect to the body and mind.

Regarding the problem of acne, it can be due to various reasons like increased sebum production, blockage of the skin pores, inflammation, bacterial infection, etc.

Management involves application of Retinoids, Benzoyl peroxide & taking antibiotics like Azithromycin under the guidance of a Dermatologist.

So, it will be better to consult a Dermatologist to find out the exact cause & start treatment accordingly.

Wishing you a Healthy Life.
Take care.
