Is my acne caused by a food allergy?

Dr. Michael Zacharisen

No: It is very well established now that acne is not due to food allergies, but certain bacteria on the skin. There is no need to alter your diet to treat acne. Instead, see a dermatologist for the best advice; this may includes antibiotic creams, other lotions, etc. Enjoy your meals!
