Does my anti-inflammatory drugs suppressing my acne have any negative long-term effects?

I'm currently on rather strong (NS) anti-inflammatories for a medical condition. As a side-effect, my (mild) acne has has cleared up almost entirely. I'm making the most of the situation by binging on chocolate now that I have the chance, but is this going to come back and bite me in the ass once I go off the anti-inflammatories? What purpose, if any, does the inflammation of acne serve, and what are the consequences of it being suppressed?
