My son, age 15 has dry eyes and was prescribed Omega 3 in the form of flax or fish oil supplements. He tried fish oil for 2 weeks and his acne worsened. I'm afraid to try flax oil or ground flax seeds because they contain phytoestrogens which can worsen acne in males.
So it seems that my only option to have him eat more Omega 3 rich fish. Hopefully that doesn't worsen acne too! I do prepare it once a week or so and haven't noticed breakouts, but now that I need to increase his servings, I hope that his acne doesn't get worse.
If anyone has any other ideas to increase Omega 3 levels that doesn't worsen acne, I'd love to hear about them.
