So a month ago I broke out really badly.. It started with inflammed acne on my neck, under my jawline and under my mouth and I got these rashes on both sides of my lips. Two days later they also came to my cheeks, but it was strange.. I normally have maybe one or two zits that are not very inflammed, but this time they were really red, big and itchy. So I did the math and then I noticed the breakout happened just after I ate pickles in vinegar for a week long. I think I was allergic to hem so I threw them away and started a new diet at the same time.
I cut out all the bread and other bad foods and began eating: a lot of brocolli, tomatoes, spinach, avocado, fruits, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, coconut oil, carrots, 100grams of pumpkin seeds a day and, green beans, salmon and chicken. After my new diet I was spotless for one week, I was so happy because I thought I found the solution. However, a few days ago I noticed(again)two inflammed spots on my neck/jawline and a cystic zit was forming just under my lips..just like a month ago!
Maybe it's the histamine that I'm intolerant to that were in the pickles and vinegar and are also in the tomatoes, spinach and avocado? But if thats the case, why did I clear up first? It doesnt make sense.
I'm eating no wheat, no dairy, no gluten, no grains, nothing and I'm still having problems with my acne.
