Retin-A, Accutane, Antibiotics, and more are often suggested for acne especially steroid induced acne. Bodybuilders male and female spend countless hours fine tuning their bodies only to suffer form the notorious acne break outs caused by anabolic/androgenic steroids (AAS). Ketoconazole the active ingredient in Nizoral was created to prevent androgenic alopecia (balding) caused by Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
AAS related acne is dependent upon many factors such as dosages, types, and more but it is known that the sebaceous glands in our bodies have a high affinity to Dihydrotestosterone. So the use of AAS increases sebaceous gland activity which causes oily skin, mixed with bacteria and dead skin, causes clogged pores, and in turn results in acne. While Accutane and Retin-A and others are viable options for acne cases, Nizoral contains Ketoconazole which is a anti androgen. DHT is an androgen. And while Nizoral shampoo is mostly used on the scalp, there is no reason not to apply any ketoconazole product to the body be it a gel, shampoo, wash, cream, or pill form.
Topical Anti Androgens can effectively counteract endogenous androgens resulting in a suppression of growth of the sebaceous glands while leaving serum concentrations of both testosterone and dihydrotestosterone intact and not reduced. In a nut shell, Nizorals anti androgenic properties will help prevent acne without countering any of the muscle building effects of any steroids that one might be taking.
