Vyrez, do those bumps have anything in them?
Vyrez and aanabill, if you think it's food sensitivity, I would highly recommend colostrum. I haven't posted about it yet because I've only been off of it for about 4 days after 3 weeks of taking 1 gram 2x daily. But it seems like it has essentially cured my chest acne. I don't yet know if it's permanent. What I do know is that I ate 4 bags of sun chips yesterday and today and got no reaction. Oh, and 2 big slices of greasy pizza. Usually I get 6-15 red spots on my chest after 4-8 hours after eating wheat (and to a lesser extent, many other foods). These would turn into pustules if I continued to eat wheat for several days.
My chest acne was mild, though, and I still have 2 very faint very small red spots in the middle of my chest. I think I would be able to gain more of a benefit from taking it longer, and I will go through another bottle in the near future.
If you think these spots are being caused by leaky gut/food sensitivities, colostrum might be worth trying. Be careful about brands, though. Immune Tree is the best, I've heard, and is the only certified brand (by Cornell University). I used Jarrow Formulas with success.
Also, I got more acne on my face only when I started taking it. Colostrum has lots of IGF-1 (growth factor), so I would expect some sort of breakout. It happened within 4 hours of the first dose for me, and I continued getting spots on my forehead in particular for most of the treatments. No more after I stopped, though, so I guess it's a little bit of short term pain for long term gain.
If it doesn't work, you can probably rule out leaky gut/food sensitivity. Another way of testing for the food sensitivity part is to see if you clear up a little when doing a highly restrictive diet. I did the SCD diet for 2 weeks over the summer and my chest was perfect. The day after I started eating wheat, I started getting spots again.
Also, I think it's important to note that I was eating whatever I wanted starting a week into the colostrum treatment, although I did try to limit the wheat to manageable quantities to minimize potential adverse reactions. But I've had pizza, burritos, cake, pie, chips, ice cream, all the garbage I felt like eating. I did experience slight reactions during the first 2 weeks. I think this was an important step in training my immune system - the immunoglobulins in the colostrum may have interacted with leukocytes or wheat antigens and mediated the response so that hypersensitivity reactions wouldn't occur. As in, I think it's important to eat the foods you are sensitive to while taking colostrum. I took 1 gram of colostrum in the morning before food (and waited 30+ minutes until eating), and took another 1 gram sometimes directly after a large meal consisting of many foods I was sensitive to, and sometimes right before going to bed.
Anyways, sorry for the long post. Try it if you think your condition might match what I described. (Also the spots almost always itched upon formation after eating, signifying IgE-mediated reaction maybe). Hope this helps
