Hi,

I am about a month into gluten-free and for the last two weeks my face has been breaking out all over! Acne, whiteheads, blackheads...the whole 9 yards! Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea why or what I can do?

TIA

It could be you body is still detoxing, and as a result certain impurities in your system are coming to the surface. When I first started on a gluten free diet, it had more of an effect on my stomach and felt awful for quite a while before I started to feel better. We are all different, so our detox reactions will also be different. In a few months you (hopefully) will return to it's former condition.

It's hormonal fluctuations.  My hormones went *crazy* for a couple months after going on the diet.  It will even itself out soon.

Sounds like that could be DH. You may not be able to do anything about it, but I'd go through a mental list of possible gluten sources you might still be getting. Noticeable reactions to gluten will likely get worse the longer you're gluten free. I got a rash on the back of my neck, head and ears from what I can only guess would be CC, despite having never experienced anything like that while eating gluten.

 

My acne has largely gotten better, but sometimes I'll get some mild breakouts around my shoulders and upper chest. But at least these are breakouts and not constants like they used to be for me. Skin conditions can often be caused or aggravated by malnutrition. Make sure you're taking supplements, or even better get vitamin levels checked out. Consider all possible deficiencies, not just the celiac common ones, or ones that the doctor automatically tests for.
