Do citrus fruits cause a breakout and are they any good for ''acne people''?

Hi, I am new and just have this question I'd like to know more about.

I've somewhere read that citrus fruits are not really that good for people experiencing acne.It can even cause breakouts.Don't know what the roots for this story are but could anyone explain or inform me about this ?

yeah cirtus fruits such as oranges tomatoes etc have a bad effect on me. I don't know all the reasons why they are bad, but for me, my body cannot digest them as they are too acidic and so my cheeks go very red. Give them up for a couple of weeks and then re-introduce them and see if you notice any bad effect.

I get huge cysts on my neck, jaw and hairline like the next day if I eat an orange or drink OJ. And I suspect the occasional cysts I get are caused by tomatoes, lemons in my tea, etc.

I don't think citrus food makes me break for or anything. I think it actually helps my skin. Tomatoes have vitamin and minerals that can help blemishes. I think it's different for everyone.
