  1. This post has little to do with acne, as it has become the least of my concerns lately. I'm male, 21 years old. I eat a pretty healthy diet, but am inactive. I saw a dermatologist on March 2nd, 2004 for treatment of mild/moderate acne. I was prescribed antibiotics (brand name: Dynacin), and started taking them the same day.

  4. It depends how people take your advice. If someone were going to make drastic changes to their diet or start taking specific supplements that are not proven to help with acne at all, then that could be a waste of time and a good way to get people's hopes up for nothing. It would have been helpful if you had told us WHY some of these things cause acne. Your advice about not touching your face with unclean hands i can understand, yet i would hardly call that a "cause", more like a minor aggrav

  6. I've been off of dairy for about a month now, and have also made several other changes in my diet for the better. I have seen absolutely no results with my acne at all though.
