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.
