Protein shakes + acne...

Now this is going to sound mad, but since I started using whey again my shoulders have came out in loads of small ish spots, nothing like the acneon my back but all the same they're very red and very noticeable...sooooo I'm guessing that by some odd way, the protein powder is to blame...has anyone else found this?

    I have acne over shoulders, traps, back dont think protien shake is the cause though.

    However a guy I train with stopped drinking protien shakes as he was getting acne from it, when he stopped drinking them, the acne went away.

    It is a scientific fact that acne is not dietary related.
    Maybe u are getting bigger and hence more testosterone is running through your body hence the outbreak.

    Yeah, I blame that.

    I also blame getting very sweaty while working out, and not being able to reach all the right areas for a damn good scrubbin'

    BS mate, well in my experience anyway.

    Example: nuts, added almonds and mixed nuts into my diet ages ago.
    Result: outbreak of acne on face.
    Now: Stopped eating nuts, no where near break outs in such a short time as I did when I ate nuts, especially almonds!

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
    There is no room for junk food in any diet whatsoever, leave the junk in the bin.

    Dairy = contains hormones = higher risk of acne in some people

    Ive dropped dairy from my diet completely and my skin is less oily and I get very few spots. I started getting them alot more frequently after beginning taking whey protein about a year ago.

    Yes whey protein gives me acne, since I quit taking it my skin is a lot better. Diet not related to acne? Complete and utter bollocks .

    I wash my shoulders and trapz with clearasil ultra. Its really intense and really helps get rid of the shouder acne. I found drinking lots of milk causes more acne.

    I also take multi vitamin tablets and that has really helped a lot.

    I'd be interested to know if theres any proper reasoning behind diet & acne.

    Not that i'm disputing the two are or aren't related, as when i cut milk out of my diet quite significantly my skin clears up quite a bit.

    However given that acne is hormonal it does seem strange.

    it is hormonal, but can have things that make the skin more prone, ie greasy foods or foods chocka block full of artificial hormones, ie milk

    Dairy contains hormones from the cow. Its this that raises the risk of acne so the studies say.

    I avoid steak aswell for the same reason.

    True story, mate of mine was trying with his missus for a baby for bloody ages, they couldnt concieve and doc said it was because he had a rubbish sperm count. He starts training and using whey, then boom! baby! Of course this could just be coincidence/miracle.

    Is there anything whey cant solve?

    its not a fact that food and acne or not related.

    it hasn't been proven because it is difficult to prove, and has no real profit to be gained from this research, thats why no-one gives a crap about it.

    but i think they are related
