I wonder how long am I to wait to know if it will totally go away because of gluten? Will it almost be instant, or will it take weeks, or months?

I signed up here just because of this issue. Two weeks ago I stopped eating gluten, my acne was getting less and less and I attrtibuted it to the digestive enzymes I was taking and then added wheat and all the gluten products back in. The next two weeks got worse and worse till I almost reached in between mild to moderate acne. I had literally 30 zits on my forehead and it was too much of a coincidence. I stopped taking gluten products and slowly it's going down again.

I am going to see what happens over the next few days, because I really feel this is causing it!

It is only difficult in the beginning. There is a steep learning curve!

I would eat the bean dip. I usually make my own, but that looks safe to me.

That is relieving :) You guys are wonderful, I am already in love with this place. By the way my name is Patrick, it's nice to meet you all! And it's nice to feel home.

Thank you Julie, and Psawyer, the clarification makes sense. Coming across "corn gluten" I was also confused as well. People who have allergies to the gluten in corn, how would they tend to show symptoms?

Corn is gluten-free.

Some people are allergic to corn ... that is what your quote is saying. It's not a celiac thing ... it's a food allergy thing for some people, celiacs and non-celiacs alike.

Thank you Carla! That is such a relief. I must have misread the statement. Maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle is very hard. I make a pinto bean dip that I wanted to incorporate some corn chips with. This is what it contains

"Ingredients: Whole corn, corn oil, and salt. No preservatives"

So I assuming I am okay on this :)
