It's sebum. It's usually hard and waxy, but the hyperthermia
amphetamines cause cause it to liquify a bit and come out through the pores. When it hardens again (when you cool down) it clogs the pores and/or oozes out in waxy pellets.
The sebaceous gland produces an oily/waxy matter designed to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair of mammals. So, your saying (correct me if I am wrong) that the sebum with an up'd body temputure gets thinner and ooozes through the pores. When it hardens it clogs pores?
That seems like a pretty good explanation.
And no, I didnt see that thread...thanks alot yipman.

Since you're male, obviously you don't want to wear makeup but a proper skincare routine can help with this. Here's what I do: first I take my makeup off with jojoba oil. I know what you're thinking, "oil on your face? Won't that make acne worse?" but it doesn't. Jojoba oil is similar to the natural sebum in our face which is what causes acne to form so what the oil does is it tricks your body into thinking its producing enough oil which causes your acne to get better, not worse. After I put the oil on with a cotton square, I wash it off with face wash, then use a mixture of witch hazel and rose water as a toner. Lastly, I put on moisturizer.
I know this doesn't answer your question about why Adderall
and/or Dexedrine causes acne but I wanted to give you tips on how to help make your acne better. That skincare routine has really helped me immensely.
No, thank you so much. I usually just wash my face with ivory soap before bed but ill look into (allready went on the web) the jojoba oil, can you just buy it at like a drugstore or something?

I just wanted to add that when I am on my medication I drink half liter glasses of watter and I usually drink about 6 of within in the three-four hours I feel my meds. I also eat healthy foods even though it sucks trying to eat I know I have to.
So my diet and water intake are excelent or at least pretty good.
