i have had acne for years now and its affected my entire life. when i was in high school there were times when i wouldnt even leave my room because of a bad break out. i was scared to go outside. fr about three years i would get cystic acne on my forehead so for those three years i wore a winter hat every day. im still sruggling with my skin years later and feel so gross about it. ive been prescribed everything under the sun for it, ointments, pills, facial cleansers, ive used proactive, murad, all sorts of things and nothing seems to help... any advice?

  • I just read a post here the other day about a lady who was dieting and therefor stopped eating regular foods. Her acne disappeared. So when she stopped eating the diet bars she indroduced one and one food group and found that fruit (acidic) and red meat was causing her acne.. She had acne for 48 years... Sorry I don't remember her nick, but try searching for acne 48 years, because I thing she had those words in her topic. Kiera

  • Acne is often caused by an allergy or food intolerance. It is often hormonal in nature as well. Please research a treatment called NAET - Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques. It can help diagnose and clear you of allergies. www.naet.com. It is noninvasive and non drug. I think it would be helpful A food diary that you strictly keep track of may help pinpoint foods or drinks that are contributing to your condition. I like the www.acne.org website for a skincare regimen. Best wishesDOM
