Question About Gluten Being A Possible Cause To Cystic Acne

04 October 2013 - 04:31 AM

Hi. I had bad cystic acne on neck and jawline on and off since may last year. I'm 24 now by the way. It would be really bad, then go away, then come back really bad. But earlier this year it was getting even worse. So in about may, I stopped eating dairy, it definitely helped. But then in july time I stopped eating gluten and it got so much better. But recently it's got a bit bad again.


My question is, if gluten was a cause, would I suffer from any other symptoms of gluten intolerance? I've never actually had any other symptoms of gluten intolerance. So maybe the cause was high gi foods? And by cutting out gluten it cut out some high gi foods?


Anyone got any thoughts on this?

Neck Acne (Bit On Jawline Too)

06 June 2013 - 05:52 AM

Hi, I posted a topic a while ago but haven't had too much luck since.


Can someone identify this type of acne?


It was suggested before possibly shaving related.


I switched razors and finally ordered an electric razor to try in a few days.


I haven't shaved since beginning of last week and my neck was fine until monday. I do want to shave the sides of my face but don't want to while there's spots there.


Here's some pics (looks worse in real life than the pics)


I was off work most of last week and went back on monday, and I wear a fleece which covers my neck which could irritate it, but I don't want to not wear it done up as then people can see my neck, lose/lose situation.


Anyone had something similar? It's only been the past 12 months on and off. Seems to come really badly then go then come back

Anyone Get Horrible Spots On Neck Like These?

21 April 2013 - 10:06 AM

Anyone else get anything similar?


I'm 24 now, been getting them on my neck on and off for just over 12 months. They look horrible, start red n big n last from a few days to a week. They rarely go to a head.


My face is ok, get a few here n there but doesn't bother me. Just my neck, stops me going out aswell unless I really have to.



I've been to dr's, he gave me I think it was differin, just made it worse. Now he's prescribed me adapalene 0.1% / benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel. I'm reluctant to collect it and use it incase it makes it worse.


Also I've got loads of tiny scars from previous ones. Recently they've only affected the left side of my neck too.


Anyone got any suggestions? I'll attach a pic, the quality isn't too good, they look worse than in the pic too.


Any help will be very appreciated
