Same Problem Here
An_251364 posted:
I am getting them and I am no teenager... frankly its quite disturbing... I am a 34 year old male, and I am going through the same problem here.

I quit 3 months 7 days and 16 hours ago. I was smoking a pack a day (Marlboro lights) for the past 17 years. I was using the patch until about 3 weeks ago. BTW the patch was awesome minus the irritated, itchy skin where they were placed.

I started to get breakouts after the first three weeks and the breakouts were really bad. I would get a zit here or there from time to time but these breakouts were different.

At the two month mark the breakouts were not as large as far as the surface area was concerned but the breakouts were just a frequent.

They have lessened over the past month (3rd) or so and have been getting them less and less frequently and are not a large.

During the entire time I kept the same cleaning regiment of my skin and did not alter as I did not want to irritate my skin even further.

I will give an update at my 4th month of quitting and let you know how the problem with the skin is going...

If anyone has any questions let me know.
