Maybe I'm being weird but have lately been fascinated with body pH and alkalinizing diet. I have pH readings of my urine from a recent ER visit. The first one is 5.0 and the reading from another hospital a week later is 5.5. I must be acidic and a breeding ground for bacteria and disease!
I am 26 and am breaking out all over my jawline, in front of the ears, and its starting to creep down my neck and up my cheeks. But its 3x worse on the left side than it is the right. ??? The rest of my face is gorgeous because I started oil cleansing a few months ago but this area doesn't seem to be affected. Could one factor be pH? I'm pretty sure I'm so acidic because I'm hardcore addicted to diet soda... the more I'm stressed the more I drink... and smoke and I've been super stressed; some days I chain smoke all day and only have diet soda, no food. The last time this happened to me, I was in a stressful situation and it just got worse and worse over a period of months, then once i got out, it started to clear up right away (i was still drinking lots of diet soda).
And is there anything you can look at from a CBC and say "yep, thats bad, that can cause acne". I do have results from a recent CBC.
Thanks for the help. Oh, I don't have insurance anymore so I cant go to a dermatoligist or a doctor for testing or anything, please don't suggest that.
