I'm a soon to be 26 year old guy and have had acne for 14 years now. 3 months ago I went on a low glycemic load diet, no diary, and no grains. I stuck to it 100 percent for 2 months and it worked perfect. I got maybe 2 small red spots which were gone in a day. The problem I am realizing now is that unless I stick to these rules for EVERY meal, I will breakout with nodules around my jawline, temples, and neck. Before going on this diet, I would get these nodules in these areas occasionally but now they come in batches.
First cheat: Full Fat Greek Yogurt ; 3 nodules
Second cheat: 3 beers ; 2 more nodules on my upper neck
Third cheat: Pasta with olive oil and chicken; FOUR NODULES (2 on temples and 2 on jawline)
When I ate food like this all the time, I never had these cluster breakouts with nodules. Clearly diet has a strong influence on my acne but I feel like I hypersensitized my body or something to these foods. What was before a slight intolerance is now a full allergic reaction.
Anyone have any experiences like this?
