  1. no dairy products.. do that for a month and see if it helps. i feel your pain as i also suffer from severe bacne. hang in there.

    leaving dairy (especially milk) out helped to reduce it for me. hope it helps you too.


  2. hey

    i have had bacne since 15.. and now i have ocd. this is really important for me to know because my ocd wont let it go..

    DOES YOUR FORESKIN COME UP WHEN IT'S ERECT?? mine doesn't and i read in paper that the smegma doesn't clear properly if it doesn't come up. maybe that is the cause for my bacne.. i know its most probably not but well i had to ask..

    please reply!


  3. hey guys my back gets mosquito bite like boils after bathing.they itch but not a lot and if i dont scratch them for a while they go away. but they come evry time i take a bath. on my arms back n shoulders. does any one esle face the same problem? any help would be appreciated smile.png

    also i have bacne but i dont think they are related. could it be dry skin coz my skin is very dry.

  5. hey.. your case sounds similar to mine.. i have been avoiding all grains lately and it seems to help.. but too early to tell.. i wanted to ask you do you consume grains a lot?? (wheat, corn , rice, oats)

  6. ok guys i went on a strictly no white sugar diet two months back! i have a food journal so know all my dates exactly.. my bacne improved considerabley.. no white sugar meant no bread no soda.. nothing that contains even a bit of sugar in ingridients.. i did have fruits though.. after 15 days i got tired and craved sugar so i started haveing nuts.. after a week pimples started comming back :( so i gave up nuts.. then for a week it imroved again.. but there were always small red spots on my shoulders which i thought is a part of me and would never go.. after that week i had to go out of town for 3 days and when i was out i had a little bit of sugar.. and a lot of fruits.. the day i came back i had 2-3 new pimples but i figured coz of d sugar i ate.. after 2 days i had a glass of fruit juice (grapes) i squezzed myself.. the next day i had three big pimples on my back!! so i gave up fruits too! :(

    its been a week now and i got no new pimple the last week! also those red spots went away too! my diet consits of..

    whole wheat flat bread ( indian roti doesnt contain sugar)

    cooked vegitables

    white rice

    lentils

    eggs

    my question is i want to drink vegitable juice.. but am afraid because eating whole fruits gave me small pimples but when i had fruit juice i got big acne.. any1 knows why this happens?? so can i dring vegitable juice at all without increasing my sugar levels?

    ps: i want to increse my weight.. i have omllette (two eggs) evry altrnate day.. my friend says its not healthy.. its healthy right??


  7. m 20 and a virgin.. my close friend who is vry cute asked me if i wana do it wid her just as friends.. i said no! not cause i dont want to.. its cause i cant cause of my bacne.. its difficult when you have a chance and cant do it rather than not doing it cause u really dont want to do it.. :(

    but all i can do is hang in..

    lately i seemed to be thinking i am never gonna hav sex with the one i love.. n f i ever wanna have sex i will have to pay for it.. i know that this is very wrong.. but face it i cant ever show my back to the girl i like..


  8. hey your case sounds like mine.. i too get acne evrywhere.. scalp butt lower upper back.. but not as bad as you though.. even my acne started with face and spread to my whole body.. n when i waz 18 it waz worst.. neck scalp face back butt.. but then i gave up diary.. i gave it whole up.. n evrything but my back cured.. evrything!!

    i havent had a pimple in a year.. (i do get pimples on my back though but ppl cant see that so).. so my advice to you is not too extreme.. just give up all diary and nuts (dry fruits) for a month.. strictly.. if you dont see an improvement during the month then it means in your case its not diary :( i have my fingers crossed for u..

    btw even i never had sex yet.. or a gf coz m afraid of them seeing my back.. i can feel your pain.. but hang in there!! :)


  9. well no new acne even tdy! :)

    now its forcing me to think.. caramel? corn? or both.. well m gna continue with my diet for a month n keep posting updates..rolleyes.gif

    @alternativista: you r awesome! you always take time n read ppls post n rply.. idk how you find the time.. ur the best!surprised.gif


  10. hey guys havent loged in for a long time.. waz busy with my experiments.. (writeing this makes me feel like a scientist)..

    nyways my story.. i have body acne for idk how many years now.. my face cured after i stopped diary..(last year) i can have it ocasionally without any effect :)

    but my body acne hasnt cured yet :( n i have never tried ny medicine for acne n after my face cleared am convinced its some food that am missing which my back is allergic to..

    nyways in about december i thot could it be caffine?? i drink green tea evry day.. have soda evry day so i thot lets stop that for a month and see.. my back improved a lot but dint clear.. after a month i.e january end i thought even choclates contain caffine so i left choclates and cakes too and now i dint get any new acne for a week but i had caramel corn and i got new acne coming.. n den aftr few days i went on vacations and had a bottle or two of sprite evry day.. n i broke out.. so i figured it couldnt be caffine as sprite has no caffine so

    i googled n found that all sodas contain corn syrup n caramel colour so i dont knw if am allergic to corn or caramel.. but giving up all these foodstuf did help my back very much.. n this stuid thought also came to my mind dat could i be allergic to baking soda!? coz for a week now i havent had bread soda biscuits n also caffine n my back is clearing.. but then it cud just be clearing for new acne to come and has nothing at all to do with my diet.. but right now m very low n needed to write evrything i have been doing..

    would love to hear ur view guys..


  11. Well I wouldn't eat wheat bran if it said you are intolerant to wheat. *confused*

    The rotate part confused me. What sort of test was this?

    "SRL will implement a highly-advanced Protein Microarray technology called 'Genearrayt'. This technology helps in the detection of IgG antibodies to more than 200 varieties of foods in single testing using minute quantities of blood sample. This method scores over the routine ELISA-based methods on account of explicit sensitivity and miniaturisation."

    this is the test i went for..

    So basically you still have acne, just no face acne.

    Then why don't you start avoiding grains and soy?

    i don't eat much soy as it is.. i don't want to avoid grains coz m vegetarian.. i will do it as a last resort.. n i had facial acne which cured after stoping milk! n if m intolerant to grains n i am haveing grains evryday it shudnt have right??

    Avoiding the foods your Allergic to completely will help. Chocolate usually contains Soy, Milk, Wheat, & Rice. Good luck finding it w/o those allergies unless you really look. Also I would avoid Egg completely due to cross contamination.

    You know what to avoid. Your path is laid out for you. I don't think you need to rotate foods you can eat, your not allergic to them. Supplements free of your food allergies will also help.

    Good Luck.

    PS what Race are you? Allergy to Soybean & Gluten is very rare. Infact, your the 1st one I read with both comfirmed by testing.

    m an indian smile.png its not an allergy test but an intolerance test and it in no way identifys allergens.. it mentions so in the report.. n when you put it that way you make it sound pretty easy tongue.png

    could you please elloborate why you rotate?

    u will understand it better when i put up my report here.. then everything will be clear.. i got it online and i cant seem to download it.. :( i will get it in hard copy tomorrow and then i will put it up here..

    right now i think i came up with all these intolerance bcoz of some gastric disorder.. so am taking a herb which aides in digestion.. i am eating everything for now but milk.. m gonna give the herb 2 weeks before i go on n avoid everything.. thanx for reading n replying :)
