So I never usually break out, like ever, I'll get one or two smallish pimples once a month, but in the past month I have been breaking out like CRAZY. I have no idea what's going on. My diet hasn't changed, I'm still as active as I always was, I haven't been using any different types of makeup and my regimen is exactly the same, I'm not on any new medication, I did get off the pill but that was last week and my skin has been bad for weeks before that. I can honestly not think of one reason why it's gotten so pimply, and me stressing out over my newfound breakouts is probably making it worse. If anyone would happen to know what on Earth is going on with my face please let me know, and if you have any good spot treatments besides benzoyl peroxide, toothpaste or salicylic acid (which burns when I put it on so I try to avoid it) that would be a great help too! 

Thanks xx

My daughter started getting pimples when she was 8, and by age 11 she had  nasty small red pimples all over her forehead and nose. 

After lots of internet research we eliminated milk from her diet. The improvement was immediate.

We have found that she also gets pimples from soy milk. 

She is vegetarian, but in my research some people reported getting acne when they ate meat, and in particular beef - though we wouldn't know.

It is pretty much accepted that  hormones that cause acne, and the hormones in these particular foods seem to create an overload.

it must be noted that everybody is different. Some people never get pimples regardless of what they eat, and others may get pimples from some foods but not from milk. Nevertheless I believe milk is the major culprit in most cases of acne.

My daughter eats yoghurt, cheese and chocolate, only in small quantities and not often, and this doesn't seem to affect her skin. Other than that she has always had a very healthy diet - lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.

She is 14 now and has lovely skin.

I have never had issues drinking milk, and I rarely eat meat to begin with, in fact I try to keep dairy out of my diet as much as I can to avoid breakouts, so I doubt that's the answer to my skin issue

This is my first post so I'm not quite sure where to start. 

 Throughout highschool I was on the pill. I had great skin and would only suffer from a pimple here and there. 

When i started college I thought I would get off the pill and give my body a rest. BAD IDEA my skin went out of control. I have tried everything BP, anti biotics. chemical peels, have been to derms, my family doctor. Iv had laser, you name it iv tried it. At first it seemed to work, my acne was under control my red marks were fading and I wasn't waking up with new pimples daily. Well now that has changed for some reason I'm starting to break out again but all under the skin little bumps. I'm not sure what to do anymore since iv tried everything even changing my diet. I'm going away in a couple weeks and the thought that i need to conceal my face and not go into the water incase people see me without make up is terrible. Any advice or things to try? I have VERY VERY sensitive skin
