In Topic: If Acne Was Caused By Diet Why Would It Only Start At Puberty?

It's more than diet, though. It's also environment, immune system development, and epigenetic inheritance. I think one should be careful of suggesting a single causal factor for the myriad types of acne.

I have yogurt twice a day most days, never had any problems with it. The same goes for cheese and sour cream. I used to get cysts from milk and ice cream.

In Topic: Starting Accutane

CeraVe has all sorts of useful things that your skin produces, and actually acts as a barrier that heals whatever is beneath it. Cetaphil is a bunch of hygroscopic chemicals that make your skin feel moist without actually doing anything. The sunblock bit also doesn't do much because the parabens in Cetaphil can react with UV light to damage your skin.


Best of luck!

Oily skin is a nutrition problem. Accutane will reduce the oil while you are on the drug, but it will be back at most a month after your last pill.


10mg/day is a fine starting dose. You'll probably want to increase it over time. If you're going to take accutane, I would skip antibiotics and their harmful side effects altogether, especially since antibiotics are certainly only temporary.

Yeah why wouldn't it be healthy? Peanut butter is okay too, but it is kind of antigenic.
