orange juice and acne connection

I heard that there is a connection between orange juice and cystic acne. My 15 year old son has been on antibiotics and topicals to no avail. I know his acne is partially due to hormones but he does drink lots of oj. Any ideas?

I'm not an expert in this but its probably the sugar in the OJ.

I'm thinking it may be the acidity. His system probably needs more alkaline.
