Maybe wash more often?

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

You say your hands are oily and it gets on your phone, so maybe try washing your hands more often throughout the day. You can wash your face more than once a day too - I often wash my face several times through the day.

I think for some people, our bodies just change the way things happen over the course of our lives. Sometimes things can be connected to a change in diet or location, even situations, but I believe sometimes they just happen for no apparent reason. Like when someone suddenly developes an allergy to latex, or pollen, or their partner or whatever.

I used to have oily skin but about a decade ago I dried up somewhat. No real explanation as not that much has changed. And three years ago, the consistency of my ear wax changed. I wouldn't have even known except I started producing a lot of it, as well. Care to explain that?

I'd take Ann's suggestion and wash your hands a few more times throughout the day, maybe face too, and see if that makes a difference. And think about whether anything has changed that might contribute to this.

Could it be from your diet?

I also experience oily skin, but I think this is due to lifting weights and exercise, you lift?

If I stop it goes away but only after a few sessions Im back to getting more pimples and sweating, of course not only during exercise but throughout the day and night as well and I shower at least 2 times a day.

In this case of lifting I think its hormone related.

Would be a good Idea to get your hormone balance check out. It might be the reason.

DO you have any other symptom as well?
