I have it on very good authority from my son's dermatologist that what you
eat has nothing to do with acne. The problem is a bacteria and not food.
Take your daughter to a competent dermotologist where she can be treated
with meds that will make a big difference immeditately.
I tried the food route with my son for over a year and he just continued to
get worse..within a few months of proper treatment and he started to
improve..it's a year and he's just about finished..had i started sooner, it
would have been finished sooner.
