Acne from Pain Medications

Why does my skin get blind pimples, acne, & blisters from certain pain medications?
I tried taking Generic Morphine ER to treat chronic pain and I have painful blind pimples,
soars,blister like pimples that hurt really bad and take forever to heal.
Other meds like Vicodin, Percocet, clorazopan, tezenedine most are generic and not 100%
on the spelling of some...
Seems like brand name meds like Opana do not cause these ill effects.

Thanks for any help with this...

Hi there!

This is likely to be a drug reaction to the medication or one of the ingredients in the formulation. I would suggest discussing this with your prescribing doctor to switch to a different brand or a different medication to prevent the reaction.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
