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!
Celiac And Now Acne!

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!
