Can peanuts and chips cause acne?

Probably not: Despite much folklore, there's a dearth of real knowledge about diet and acne. Dairy is more credible as a risk. The key is that all acne is manageable; if topical benzoyl peroxide has not worked, your physician has something stronger. Being young and having acne are bad enough without giving up something as much fun as peanuts. ...Read more

I love peanut butter sandwiches but I have a major issue with acne. Anything else similar I can eat?

I love peanut butter sandwiches but I have a major issue with acne. Anything else similar I can eat?

Doubt connection: In a world full of dangerous and crazy things, be thankful that your favorite is peanut butter. I doubt it's causing your acne; the links with diet are soft, with dairy being more strongly implicated than anything else. Use 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day for acne; if you're not clear in two weeks, your physician's prescription rx can and will clear you to enjoy peanut butter as always. ...Read more

Hello, I have body acne everywhere and I was wondering if peanut butter could affect acne? I eat ALOT so could it be a newly developing peanut allergy

Hello, I have body acne everywhere and I was wondering if peanut butter could affect acne? I eat ALOT so could it be a newly developing peanut allergy

Unlikely: Oily foods in general may affect acne, but not a cause for it, and eating peanut butter a lot doesn't mean you will develop peanut allergy, peanut sensitivity would have developed earlier, and you won't be able to tolerate peanut butter or peanuts, that being said, you need to eat in moderation and concentrate on healthy foods, take care ...Read more

Boiled peanuts, can I get pimples?

Can eating honey cause acne?

Can eating honey cause acne?

No: The one link that has shown some consistency in studies is that for some people, dairy products exacerbate acne. Giving this up would be a hardship for me. I was surprised to find that chocolate has been exonerated. Most important is that you know that all acne is manageable with today's methods. If topical benzoyl peroxide for two weeks has not cleared you, get with your personal physician. ...Read more

Dose eating to much fruit cause acne or make you gain weight?

Dose eating to much fruit cause acne or make you gain weight?

Not acne: Eating fruit is not likely to cause acne. However fruit does have sugar and hence calories. Gaining weight would depend in your total caloric intake and physical activity. If you eat a lot of fruit and do not cut back on other foods, you will gain weight.

No: The link between diet and acne is weak, the strongest being with dairy as a cause and even this is soft.

Could eating chocolate or greasy foods cause acne?

Could eating chocolate or greasy foods cause acne?

No: It is a common misconception that "fatty foods" and chocolate causes acne. In most cases, food plays a very small role in acne. Studies have shown that soda, chips, caffeine, fried foods, and chocolate do not cause acne. So why the link? Stress may aggravate acne, and it may simply be that we eat certain comfort foods (like chocolate) when we are stressed hence the link. ...Read more

Is eating more of one certain food group cause acne, I have been eating more yogurt and Kiefer does that cause acne?

Is eating more of one certain food group cause acne, I have been eating more yogurt and Kiefer does that cause acne?

It depends: Certain foods can make acne worse depending on the individual. The two most common food groups that I see associated with acne are processed foods (sugar and carbs) and dairy products. Gluten can also be associated with increased acne. The fact that you are consuming more dairy could be playing a role. I would consider going on a break from dairy (eg, milk, cheese, yogurt, kefir) for a month. ...Read more

Does eating ice cream cones cause or worsen acne?

No: Acne is only mildly related to diet. While dairy exacerbates it in some people, my answer is still no unless in your case the link is clear. And it is moot.

Don't hesitate to get with your physician who can add something prescription-strength -- perhaps a month on a tetracycline, or if neede something even stronger. Best wishes. ...Read more

Breaking out! Pus-y filled acne on face recently. Don't have major acne issues, but just started eating meat again&coffee? What the cause/how to fix?!
