smhair  have been using Pentasa for a couple of years now and have never had an acne problem.  All of a sudden, I am having severe acne on my face, back and chest.  Does anyone have any suggestions or experience to suggest that the two are related?  There is no evidence in the literature but a pharmacist friend looked up the anecdotal notes and there seems to be a connection.  Does anyone have any experience or suggestions with this problem?  I am 21 years old and it is not the most beautiful thing in the world to be having pimples and acne everywhere. HELP!  I am taking about 4000 mg of Pentasa daily.  That is the only medication that I am currently taking other than protonix, and probiotics.

I had the same issue when I was your age. I ended up getting proactiv. It works. If that doesn't work - talk to your doctor. There are prescription skin medicines that are topical so they would not upset your guts.
