My name is Tony and I'll just give some brief background information about myself. I think it's safe to say that I'm quite experienced with acne. I've been dealing with severe acne since the age of 15. I've undergone two treatments of accutane but it always comes back (although not as severe as it used to be).
But anyway, back to the main point. I've always been skeptical when people have told me to change my diet, mainly because the people that tell me this have clear skin and I feel like they have no idea what it feels like to actually be cursed with this disease. However, I noticed something that may have just changed my mind completely.
When I was young, I was very sensitive to fruit for some reason. My assumption is because I was very thin and I probably couldn't digest too much fructose. But just this past week, my roommate kept telling me how amazing avacado and kiwis were. Out of curiosity, I wanted to give kiwis another try...so I ate one. And just like that I fell in love (not really). However, over the past two days, I had probably eaten around 20 kiwis. They were just so good!
And then something happened. I started to break out a lot on my face, but I told myself awhile back that I would no longer let my acne control my life because it had ruined too much of it already. I thought nothing of it, thinking that it was probably just stress. But then I started to break out more...and then I got a huge cyst near my testicles and this one was HUGE. The size of this pimple was almost as big as when I had quarter sized cystic acne before I went on accutane. Then I got to thinking... COULD FOOD ALLERGIES BE THE CUPLRIT????
What are your thoughts and experiences on this?
