Milk and acne: Whey protein is the protein contained in whey, the watery portion of milk that separates from the curds when making cheese. There is a recent clinical study done in Italy where they linked a considerable percentage of acne outbreaks to milk and dairy products, so it could be the whey, probably not the creatine.
