    Serious acne

    I have been battling with stubborn acne for a long time and I have used some medications with little or no effect. Please, what can I do to remove this problem?

    Ayodel,

    There are certain foods that raise the risk for acne. Foods like refined carbs, fast food, dairy, and a high fat diet rich in omega 6.

    It sounds like it could be the average American diet.

    Dear AYODEL,

    Taking fish oil capsules every day and cutting out sugars, and eating fish and more real vegetables (not canned, fast food or pre-prepared foods) cleared up my skin. I can drink real whole milk and plain yogurt (no canned fruit) with no problem. But did cut out all sugary foods, as they cause the fatty cells and infection to increase.

    I believe this is a nutritional issue that can be overcome.

    My son had really bad acne and we tried everything available so I searched for days on the Internet. Look up aspirin therapy for acne.

    Visit a Med Spa, I had IPL lasering done to my skin to shrink the sebaceous glands (oil glands) my face cleared up over night and never broke out again.

    This was after years of antibiotics, acutane and every topical on the market.

    I had acne all over my face, for years. I tried dermatologists and other methods. They didn't fix my problem. I had to "grow" out of it. Hope your acne clears up.
