Fish Oil and Nuts

I was just wondering if anyone had the same problem as me. I began taking fish oil about two months ago. It seems like my face started to break out than but I can't be sure. For the past week I have been adding nuts( almonds & walnuts) to my diet and I have been getting tiny clogged pores all around my mouth. My skin is really really oily.This is not normal for me. My chin has tiny bumps all over it that I didn't have a few days ago. I also have more blackheads than ever on my nose and around my mouth. When you are allergic to nuts what does the acne usually look like that you get from it and where is it? Can you have too many omega 3s? Does anyone else have this problem? Sorry for all the questions...but this is so frustrating. Fish Oil and nuts are SUPOSSED to help the skin not make it worse. I know for some people it does help a lot.. but maybe some people can't tolerate it. Thank you for any help! :D

I am allergic to nuts. It makes me break out on my neck and it looks like I have chicken pox there. Sunflower seeds do the same thing. Elf

I forget what it is in nuts, im pretty sure its a chemical used in the process of getting nuts to the market, but I've attributed a large amount of nuts with acne breakouts before.

avoid nuts. They do not help with the Omega 3: 6 ratio. they have high omega 3 but much higher omega 6 content thereby further screwing the already skewed ratio.

Fish oil, especially cod liver oil can not possibly harm you. Cod liver oil has omega3, vitamin A, vitamin D - three of the most potent anti acne agents.

Zero nuts. Continue with fish oil/CodLiverOil
