Was really hoping for more on the topic as just since this was posted ecigs users have quadrupled! About 3-4 months after quitting and switching to ecigs I started to break out pretty bad. I NEVER had a problem with acne before. I have now had this persistent acne for over 3 months!
My own research has turned up that yes this seems to be a common problem with quitting (not just those who then vape). The bulk of my acne is on my back and at times very itchy or painful (sometime both at the same time ). My chin and inside of my nose also seems to have been effected just no where near the extent my back has.
A month after I started with ecigs I stopped hacking up really nasty stuff and 2 months after I could breath and walk up stairs again without being out of breath! So the acne is not not going to push me to start smoking again (and I am almost down to no nicotine).
I'm hoping someone comes up with someway to get rid of these because tradition acne meds do NOTHING to stop/prevent these breakouts and from my reading it can continue on for up to a year while the body continues to get rid of all the residual toxins left behind from analogs. I'm hoping my massive increase in water intake as a result of vaping will decrease that time as my body should be able to flush all of that out a lot quicker.View Thread
