Help! Kiwi Or Tomato



I am getting more and more white heads does anyone know if there is a connection between kiwi or tomato on acne. I eat half a tomato a day and a whole kiwi for breakfast.

The kiwi does cause a slight tingling sensation - is this is a sign of a possible allergy. Tomato, is a nightshade and so are potatoes which give me acne however the potato related acne could be due to the potatoes high gi.

Does anyone else experience breakouts from these two?


I have started to connect tomato juice and acne lately. I drink Michelada and beer and each time I discover new blemishes. Since your post was several years ago, have you confirmed this?

it is strange to read this now because recently i thought about tomatoes as an acne trigger, too. i cut tomatoes from my diet about two weeks ago. 

according to google, tomato is a big allergen so i guess tomatoes could cause acne instead of kiwis.

seeing that you eat it everyday it could just be a build up which is now being reflected in your skin. try cutting it out for 2-4 weeks and see what happens, then slowly introduce it back in. could do the same with the kiwi as well. :)
