Avoiding acne

Posted by Jason on September 15, 2002 at 01:47:53:

I'm 16 and don't have much acne, never did. I get a zit here and there, but nothing major. But, I'm always thinking that it will get worse when I get older. I've even started noticing more popping up more often lately. So, how do I avoid acne? What foods should I stay away from? Should I stay away from cola? Drink a lot of water? Please help with any info! Thanks.



Also, what are some good acne remedies? nmi

SR, exercise, and whole foods diet. Read Dr. Stoll's acne archives. Fully explained and discussed there. Use the link below.

Do yourself and us a favor and read the archive before posting any additional questions. This question has been asked and answered many times already.

Hi, Jason,

If you do start getting significant outbreaks, the thing to do is to see a dermatologist. They can treat it very well, and that will avoid the scarring that results from untreated acne. Maybe you could schedule a visit now, to get some advice about prevention.

I am so far from being a teenager, I don't remember what works and what's a myth in terms of acne.

While on the subject of acne, I've noticed that my adolescent daughter pimples last for weeks. She doesn't get many yet, but they are so slow healing that I'm wondering why. Does anyone have an answer, or an idea of what to do about it?

Hi, Jason.

Listen to Paul C.

Since self-hypnosis has been shown to be very effective for reversing acne, perhaps your "expectation" is helping cause your problem.

Dermatologist will only perscribe antibiotics and accutane...both POISONS...try to deal with this through natural means will be the best bett.

Slow healing of skin may be due to zinc deficiency (which in turn may indicate lowered immunity). Try Zinc tally test or just supplementing with zinc for a while.

Is it safe for a pre-teen to take zinc? How much should she take (or in what form?) THank you for the advice - I didn't know that zinc deficiency could affect healing. She also has allergies and perhaps zinc could help those too. Is the zinc tally test something she would do at a doctor's office?
