I have had cystic acne for about 1 1/2 years, but just found out what it was this week. It wasn't bad until a couple of months ago. Thinking back, 1 1/2 years ago was when I switched from regular soft drinks to diet soft drinks which contain aspartame. I have been drinking a lot more of these lately and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed a connection? I found a website about side effects of aspartame with numerous postings which would take many hours to go through. I did find one that said she had cystic acne, along with many other problems, that went away when she stopped the diet drinks.
