Zinc for acne

Read online a little while ago that you can take zinc to control acne. I went to the supermarket and got a bottle of 50mg Zinc. At first, I noticed a slight improvement but then it went back to the way it was before. They say online that you can go up to 100mg so I started taking two 50mg pills. It got a little worse but they also said it gets worse for a little bit before it gets better.

So basically, for an adult male, can 100mg of zinc a day be harmful in any way?
