Dairy and Acne


Anonymous ~ I grew up on milk, I would have it everyday.  I developed horrible painful acne around the age of 13 so my mom took me to a dermatologist who told me that it was impossible for food to give me acne.  She then proceeded to give me Accutane.  The Accutane did work for a while.  I had an allergy scratch test and found out I was allergic to milk as well as many other foods.  As soon as I eliminated the milk my acne went away and I dropped 10 pounds.  What a stupid doctor that women was.  NO ONE should go on Accutane it is horrible.  I have milk sometimes but when I do about 5 days later I will get a huge pimple.  Not sure why it takes 5 days to pop up.
