Does prolonged use of champix cause acne outbreak and sores in the mouth ?

I have been taking champix for 6 weeks. I am now experiencing an unusual acne breakout all over my face and I have little sores on the inside of my mouth . Is this a side effect of the drug?

ACNE is an infrequent side effect of using CHAMPIX and similarly mouth ulcerations can be caused by this drug.
Stop using this drug and consult a dermatologist for clearing of your ACNE.
Take some B COMPLEX vitamins twice a day for 2 weeks.
You should be all right soon.
