I talked to a doctor about it once and he told me it was totally normal to break out when you're sick because your immune system is stressed. Well, when you're being attacked by allergens and your bodies having to fight them off it seems logical that you'd break out then too.
Also, I get what seems like breakouts but is really more of a type of rash from dustmites in my bedding. It's a constant battle for me to keep them under control so I can avoid breakouts.

i have been in new york city for 2 years. the first year my eczema was bad, and the second i got acne and eczema. obviously the air quality here sucks. but i was also under lots of stress. i lived in different regions and didnt have acne, but eczema once in a while. places where the air is dry have been hard on my skin. just a thought.

Yeah I can't explain it either. I went to China where the air quality is WRETCHED yet, I was clear! :-k They oughta do a study where they fly acne sufferers around the world to see which places aggravates their conditions. North America will probably be suspect #1.
Any volunteers??? ME ME ME!!!!!!!! Travel time!

i forgot to mention that i went to the allergist for nasal allergies and asked him about my acne. i am allergic to a lot of fruits. he said that if you have a food allergy a reaction will happen within 15 minutes. and i know diet affects my acne because carrots have a lot of sugar and when i eat them my face becomes red (acne gets inflamed too)
