In brief: Milk and acne

Dairy products can cause acne in some patients.
The reason that milk products cause acne is because milk contains hormones that "turn on" oil glands.  the cows that give the milk are pregnant and milking most of their lives.  these hormones are not injected into the cows - they are natural hormones that cows make during every "menstrual" cycle, but during pregnancy these hormones are produced conti.

In brief: Think of the problem

With typical acne, the problem is the sweat product is to thick and the pore is blocked.
This can be hormone related and reduced some by increasing clear liquids(water). There are a number of things to do. Don't scar yourself so learn proper removal of blackheads. If the acne is life altering get to a proper physician for help.
