Hello to all that will read. I wont go down the whole ive had acne since i was 13... basically,im male, im 22 and tried it all. 2 courses of accutane which i would not recommend, side effects still hitting me. vitamins, washes, peels, ive done it all!
My break through. My acne seemed to calm down, you would have thought being 22, but it was still persistent, still sucking my pride. Anyway, i decided to go see a private derm in Manchester uk, 1 trip there got me onto roaccutane again, way too easy! after the side effects started getting me after 5 days i had second thoughts and decided to look elsewhere. I stumbled on allergies and acne, that article alone was my break through.
I always thought it was strange when id get some food before work, have a sandwich or some pasta, instead of being full of energy after id be sluggish and tired for hours and hours which affected my work, i was so used to this that i didnt think anything of it until i stumbled on the allergies and acne. I decided to get an allergy test off the internet and with a therapist just to double check. Little did i know that i am wheat intolerant! this was my turning point.
at that moment my lifestyle remained exactly the same but i dropped wheat from my diet, since then i am 100% honest, i havent had a since spot! I wouldnt sign up, write all of this if it wasnt true. i looked for answers my whole life, spent thousands on trying to find out and a £45 allergy test finally gave me my answer. I know this might not be the answer to everyones acne, but if youve tried it all like me, you have a decent diet, wash properly, out the hormonal acne age, then get a test done! i did and it changed my life.
Id be happy to answer anyones questions on this, i hope it helps, even if i help 1 person, thats one less person staring in the mirror, not wanting to go out because you feel too embarrassed.
Dont give up! keep trying, you will succeed! peace and love
