Eggs, cholesterol and of course....acne

Hello everyone

Before starting this question I found this on the forums as a quick reference:


From the discussion above I understand eggs do not affect acne. Is it true? I don't know. I have an interesting Idea though.

I eat eggs. OK I eat a lot of eggs. I used to eat about 10 or more eggs every morning for about a year. I started getting acne a month or so after starting to eat so many eggs (I was on accutane before and it cleared the acne). Now maybe it was just a coincidence and the acne was about to return when I started eating eggs. However recently I went to a cosmetician as I have a lot of milia looking bumps on my face which get inflamed etc (they are not as expressed as milia is - they are deeper). Now the cosmetician said that these are made of cholesterol which I don't think is true BUT it somehow fits with the events in my past - eat eggs, get acne. Now I think I have found the solution to my acne problem - frequent deep cleaning procedures (every month) but I was just wondering whether it is the eggs cause it takes about a month and a half for those white things on my face to fill up so it might be the eggs and mayonnaise (which I eat a lot of). I think this could help somebody.

I eat like 3 eggs a day...I don't know, I get acne when I do or don't eat eggs so I don't think it makes a difference.
