Well it seems you have awnsered your own question here- don't eat chocolate or pancakes. You may be able to try a healthier alternative such as fruit for sweet cravings, however you really have to try for yourself and see, as what works for someone else may not work for you. Also, you will need to stick with a diet longer than a week in order to solidify your causes of breakouts. You can do this by keeping a journal of food you have eaten along the way. Don't make the mistake of correlating a certain food to 'one' breakout otherwise you may find yourself starting a never ending list. So long story short, make a journal of what works and what doesn't. All the best

In Topic: Lumps On Gums Below Cystic Acne

Hi there, I personally haven't heard of lumps on gums contributing to cystic acne, however not to say they aren't correlated. Perhaps its a reaction to toothpaste, not sure? With regards to accutane and  dermatologist appointment- take a photo when your acne flares up and tell them your situation. They will be the decider of how much accutane you should take. From what you have explained here 20mg/day may be a ideal amount and i have seen people have a lot of success on this dosage; however this is something that you should talk to your dermatologist about. Lastly if your not happy with your derm, change; I know they are expensive etc however its worth getting good advice, and don't be afraid to ask them lots of questions! All the best

See your doctor or GP if this persists. Though i haven't heard of it, it may be the drug or even a placebo effect/ in your head. A ten minute awkward conversation is worth it mate. Go in and talk it out, docs see and hear far worse. All the best

Have you have any sun exposure lately?  If these persist I would see a dermatologist/ sun spot clinic. Better safe then sorry.
