Before we dive into this mess, let's go over some background information of how I got to this point.
1.) I started to do paleo around 3 years ago. Started with Lacto-Paleo and stayed this way for a little bit less than a year. Overall my acne improved 95%, and I was very satisfied with the results back then. However, it stopped at 95% and I was consistently getting new pimples daily. Nothing severe, but still frustrating to have no progress.
2.) Dairy gave me eczema, so I decided to cut it out. I did this for a couple of months and the eczema went away relatively quick. No improvement on acne though, so I went cold turkey and did Zero-Carb. After a year, still no improvement. If anything, I've only became more sensitive to "non food" after these 2 years. I could even feel the effects instantly when I eat them.
3.) Back to regular Paleo approximately 8 months ago and I've been doing it ever since. Still, nothing changed. I'm consistently gaining new pimples every day. I would get bad acne if I eat problem foods. If I increase carbs intake to moderate/high, I break out like a mofo. Strange because I was still getting acne on Zero-Carb.
My acne is facial, chest, and back, so for sure I know it's internal. Problem is, it seems like nothing can fix it. Along with acne, I have a host of other problems(FUCK) like dry skin, goosebumps or chicken skin or whatever you call it, bad hair shred. I just don't look healthy, to put it bluntly. Also, I now get hungry really fast(because of carbs), which I absolutely despise. The biggest problem was constant diarrhea. BUT! Good news I finally have it under control after I incorporated gelatin into my diet 3 some months ago. I still get diarrhea maybe once or twice a week, but it's no longer as bad as it used to be. This leads me to believe maybe I have a leaky gut problem all along. BTW, just so you know, I'm still getting new pimples every day at more or less the same rate I did 3 years ago.
Is it possible that my remaining acne is related to the digestion/gut problem that I currently have? If so, is there anything I can add to speed the healing and the recuperation process? Just anything to look into. If not, what are some things I might have missed? Anybody who has dealt with a persistent acne problem, please offer some advice. Also, could my other problems(dry skin and bumps all over, seriously it just looks unnatural and unhealthy no matter how you look at it) be also related to it?
Sorry about this horribly composed post. English is not my specialty.
