I am starting to think this diet is making my skin worse! I thought I was just getting my usual PMS breakouts but they're not going away and I think they correlate with the increased dairy, sugar and caffeine - NONE of which I used to eat. These pimples are more cystic and painful and they are taking forever to heal. My face also seems more blotchy and red looking.
I refuse to take the pill, but was wondering what the verdict is on spironolactone.
I know it's an anti-androgen, but I'm confused at whether it's anti or pro estrogenic. When I took it very briefly a few years ago my skin was 100% flawless.
Aside from my Retin-A which helps a bit, nothing topical seems to work with this type of acne so I feel like I need an internal solution. I have been supplementing with Nutrisorb A for almost a month - up to 20-30 drops daily but it's done nothing. Also started with Progest-E.
I like this diet a lot but I am getting rather desperate for a solution to the skin issues...
