Can a dairy-free diet reduce acne breakouts/acne severity?

Not the key: Acne is only marginally related to diet and not at all to hygiene or lifestyle. You're wasting your time if you try to clear yourself with 'pop' experiments. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide, in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate. If you're not clear in two weeks, phone your physician for something to add. ...Read more

Obsessive questions: Many physicians (including me) have answered your questions about this subject multiple times. The answers you've received do not seem to satisfy you, because you continue re-asking the same question. This makes me know you are suffering greatly. I suggest you see a psychiatrist in your area about this problem. S/he can help you with obsessive thoughts and compulsions. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Does exercising (gym, yoga etc.) help avoid remission of adult acne? Has milk to do with acne, i've read it contains oxytocin? I am allergic to milk.

Does exercising (gym, yoga etc.) help avoid remission of adult acne? Has milk to do with acne, i've read it contains oxytocin? I am allergic to milk.

Wrong approach: Ignore everything you read online about acne. With your hair loss, you may want to get with your physician about a hormonal problem. Otherwise, there's no figuring out why some folks have acne into later life. I was able to stop using Rx when I was around 50. Kee it under control with topical benzoyl peroxide or more if is needed -- your physician can help. Best wishes and keep exercising. ...Read more

How to consume dairy without getting cystic acne?

How to consume dairy without getting cystic acne?

Whoa: Dairy does seem to exacerbate acne in some people, but your real question should be, "How do I manage acne which in my case has been very severe?" I'll assume you're using topical benzoyl peroxide and you also need to be under the care of a competent physician who knows how to give systemic Rx.

Can diet modifications help treat regular headaches due to spironolactone? Current dosage of spironolactone- 150mg per day for hormonal acne.

Can diet modifications help treat regular headaches due to spironolactone? Current dosage of spironolactone- 150mg per day for hormonal acne.

Not so much: It depends if your headaches are due to BP decreasing when taking you spironolactone as you are young and likely have low bp. I can't say this for sure without knowing your blood pressure readings. So diet wouldn't help unless you increased you sodium intake to increase you blood pressure, which i would never ever recommend. I would consider discontinuing the your spironolatone if this continued. ...Read more
