    Acne and chocolate - possible allergy?

    I have heard people say that chocolate causing acne is just a myth. While that may be true in general, I can say that it definitely breaks me out. It is the only food that does so. I have been told by a doctor that I am probably allergic to chocolate, and that this is why it breaks me out. Does anyone else have a simular problem? If so, do you know what it is about chocolate that causes an allergy of this kind? By the way, I no longer eat chocolate and my face has cleared up as far as the pimples and cysts, but I still have a major blackhead problem. Any help is appreciated.

    Yes I have the same problem, but Im sure many people here will swear up and down that diet doesnt effect acne; I know it does (for ME anyway). Im not sure what to do about the blackheads, but I use purpose bar and that stuff seems to work pretty well

    Other posts on this board(wherever they are) explain how acne could be caused by people consuming foods that contain a hydrogenized fat that does something or other to acne. It could just be that your body is sensetive to those hydrogenized fats. Stop eating that chocolate! <IMG SRC="">
