I am 13 years old and was diagnosed with Celiac Disease almost two years ago.  In the last year I have developed some pretty bad acne.  My dermatologist has only tried topical creams because she says that I shouldn't take anything else.  When I'm on antibiotics, my face is much better.  Does anyone know if there is a standard course of treatment for Celiacs who have acne?  I would love any advice you can offer!

In my experience, there's not a whole lot you can do about acne, other than control it with topicals and antibiotics, and slowly weening off of those. I've dealt with acne since I was 15 and after my celiac diagnosis at age 19, not much was different in terms of my regimen and the results.

 

Hang in there, unfortunately it's a part of growing up!

You could try looking at your diet....ie, have a few seeds sprinkled on your cereal... almonds for zinc, pumpkin and sunflower seeds for EFAs and a good b-complex vitamin and warm water with lemon juice.

You can take zinc minerals, it helps to reduce pimples and acne but it doesn't fix definitely. 

 

It is better to test for gluten it might work out and fix acne right at begining
