Nutrition and acne.

Danby FW.
Editor’s note: The relationship between food and acne is controversial, with some believing strongly that there is a correlation and others feeling that it is merely a myth. Some recent reports suggest that there is an association between dairy and acne (J Am Acad Dermatol 2005;52:207–14, J Am Acad Dermatol 2008;58:787–93). It has been argued that hormonal constituents or factors that influence endogenous hormones are present in sufficient quantities in dairy to have an acnegenic effect.
