You clearly have an intolerance to those items and accutane won't cure that. Just don't eat it as it does not agree with your body

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.


God is good to me..........more than I deserve.


James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Take a low dose of vitamin a from the drug store. Don't take accutane. Drink lots of water but never drink with meals. Take apple cider vinegar wit meals. Take a probiotic at the end of the day. Most importantly cut all gluten, soy, dairy and sugar out of your diet. Try the FODMAPS diet or paleo.

Weird! I just googled whey powder and acne cause I've been clear 5 1/2 years on topicals and started using 100% whey to build more lean muscle in my abs and now have the most severe acne of my life and am on accutane! I'm convinced there is some kind of link there and am not going to use protein powders in the future, regardless of the evidence otherwise. I also noticed while I was on whey my boobs seemed to be shrinking a bit. Since I've stopped I've still got the acne (hence the accutane) but body going back to normal and not much change in muscle mass anyways.
