So I've been working very hard on trying to figure out why I have acne at 26. I have mild acne, ever since high school. I remember taking Tetracycline for a little while during my teen years, then recently stopped taking Minocycline. I've been reading about how some people have an over growth in Candida yeast/fungal in the body from antibiotics. This causes the body to become out of balance, and causes numerous problems like acne. Since acne is from toxins, maybe my body has abnormal Candida yeast growth. I'm getting my blood work done to see if this is the problem. I'm quite sure this is the problem because certain foods trigger it and make it worse. I do eat breads, and I get sugars from fruits. These foods easily trigger it, as well as hormones. What do you think?

STOP THE BREADS - switch to whole grains if you must have grains.

Probiotics
green teas
lean proteins
lots of vegetables
limit grains
limit fruits - you will have to do this at first during treatment. But don't remove all.

You will be limited, but you will see improvement if you indeed have candida. There are also some fantastic websites out there. A candida diet is a good diet for acne. Also, those liver cleansing diets are super. I have 3 liver books now and they have taught me that the liver has a major role in acne.

I was the same as you. I think they put me on a birth control pill that had tetracycline in it. It helped at the start, but then nothing I did seemed to help. Then I found that my breakouts were almost like rashes. No products made them go away.

My suggestion to you is that you pick up a book on the subject. William Crook has a great book called "The Yeast Connection". A number of libraries carry it, and it's sold at all the major bookstores (when I first went through this, I sat in Chapters and read through the book before buying it).

Bread was my favourite food (still is, though I can't eat it). I find that I still get the rashes/breakouts from sugars/sugar substitutes.

If you don't have serious problems with digestion, the diet may not be too hard for you. It starts out pretty bleak, but gradually gets better as you incorporate more things.

Do you have any other symptoms? Foggy head? Thrush? Bloating? Fatigue?

The problem with the diets is that there are SO many out there. And the specialists don't agree on all things. Some diets are also more of a "fad" than a treatment plan. It can all be overwhelming.

I have my own website on it (non-profit...purely info...free info). It may act as a good starting place for you. www.CantEatIt.net.

Good luck and good health.
