I'm just wondering if kiwifruit causes breakouts for many people. It's so nutritious, I hope that isn't what's causing the recent breakout.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I used to be slightly allergic to kiwis as a kid and got tingling in my mouth etc if I ate one. But this is the Ig4-type of instant allergic reaction and I don't know if it can cause acne. My reaction was most likely related to my pollen allergy, and I got it from apples and carrots as well. I don't get any symptoms from kiwis or other fruit anymore.

I'm glad to hear it isn't a common problem. I've added a few new foods lately and I really didn't want kiwifruit to be the culprit. We are eating one a day lately, which seems reasonable. I'm just getting a little paranoid since my son broke out so badly from a week on fish oil supplements.

If you eat kiwi, you also eat other fruit?
All fruit causes me problems unfortunately, especially sweet ones, so I just cut it all out for now.
Hope to add it back in once I'm clear.
