hi!

i've been avoiding gluten for not many days though.

its probably just a week.

so am not sure if its related or not.

but what i want to know,desperately, is why am i suddenly having small but red angry white headed zits on one of my cheeks.

some of them do slightly itch sometimes.not all.

am also having teeny-tiny whiteheads on the same chick.

and today i had a new one..the place itched for quite some time and then after a while i noticed i have a red head there.

i anyway have many spots/PIH on that part of my face and now this.

**it could be heat(i spent cooking hours one in the kitchen,its summer here)

**it could be the anti-fungal shampoo i was using for 2-3 days.a few bumps on my forehead seem to disappear for that.

but i used it all over my face for two days..but am only having this after good 2-4 days of stopping.

**it could be something i eat.but i havent changed my diet at all.

except for i dont take whole wheat(which i had for dinner forever).and i dint have any active zit/acne of almost 1.5 mnths.

its not even days nearing my periods.

i was kinda clear and just before i need to go out for somewhere very important to me in 2 days i've these red spots.

i just couldnt hold myself crying.

which btw i have not done for ,what seems now, like ages.

although i use saslic(salicylic acid wash 1%) as usual and apply clindamycin phosphate gel on it(as spot treatment) as usual.

i cant see any change.its been 2-3 days already.

what should i do?

i dont want to break down again for i need to be strong.

but i just cant hold it anymore.

i dnt know what to do!

Hi Aana,

I am sorry I am seeing this post so late. Are you eating a lot more white rice than usual to compensate for the lack of gluten (wheat chapatis)?? It could be insulin spikes cause of that.

Please dont break down-- you are a strong girl and it is going to get better...

Have you tried going back to your old diet? If that kept you clear for 1.5 months that is what is right for you. Gluten may not be the cause of acne for everyone.

Dont worry too much they look pretty small and will go away soon.

hey!

thank u so much for the support.

i am still not sure why i get red whiteheads or tiny zits here and there.

i used to get tiny whiteheads always but lets see.

i wanna give wheat-free diet a full month or so and then swap.just to check.

but yes,am quite sure gluten has no effect on me.

also i stopped cinnamon because the sticks when chewed for long time seems to hurt my mouth.its kind of strong.

how r u doing?

Yeahh it would be good to wait for a month. I was clear for 10 days till yesterday, thanks to my Mom's diet. I have a new bump on my forehead this morning. I also after 10 days have not had a BM for the first time in 10 days this morning, so worried. I am pretty sure indigestion issues are my acne cause, because I got clear once I had regular BMs. This weekend people were actually complimenting my skin.

To top it I have to undergo a minor surgery tomorrow and have been told I will be given antibiotics and Ibuprofen after the anesthesia wears off to have over a week to prevent infection, I am worried that may further damage my gut. So lets see. I am hoping for the best.

i dont think missing one day should worry u so much.provided the next day is alright.

it could be stress as well thats causing it.

checked for myself.

what surgery is it?
