In brief: Myth

Controlled tests show diet has little to do with acne.
With today's rx's, even in a dysfunctional health care system, all acne should be manageable. If your problem is intermittent, a systemic antibiotic begun when a breakout seems imminent may be the cornerstone of effective treatment, perhaps with a topical agent. Good luck.
