Food Allergies and Acne - Is Your Diet Causing Your
Blemishes?  
by W. Samaan
An allergy is an intolerance to certain elements in the environment. If you are allergic
to a particular item, your body treats it as if it were an invader, causing an
inappropriate immune system response. You may experience rashes, redness,
respiratory reactions, and inflammation as your body attacks the offending food.

How do food allergies cause acne?

When you eat something that you are allergic to, your body produces antibodies,
which are chemicals that are meant to attack invading substances such as viruses
and bacteria. These chemicals provoke a toxic response in your system, which can
lead to hives and acne lesions on your skin.

How can I determine which foods are causing my acne?

Some of the most common food items known to cause allergic reactions include
dairy products, nuts, shellfish, and gluten. You may be able to determine whether any
of these are causing an allergic reaction by eliminating them from your diet one at a
time. If your acne begins to clear up after a few days, chances are that you are
allergic to that food and you should discontinue eating it.

Another way to find out if you are allergic to any foods is with an ELISA food allergy
panel - contact your doctor to schedule testing.
