    No, I'm not pinning :mamoru:

    Anyway, I started getting a little acne on the sides of my head and back of my neck.

    I went to a dermatologist who prescribed some stuff. She also suggested that changing brands of whey could perhaps cause this if there are some different ingredients in the product that I react to.

    I checked my order history and found that, prior to the acne appearing, I changed whey brands AND started taking fish oil...

    Any of you ever get acne from doing either of these?

    Fish oil shouldn't be causing inflammation of any sort, so I doubt it's that. Whey..eh. If you increased your protein intake period and started lifting heavy (or just working out more) you may notice some increase in acne because of a) sweat and b) increased test.

    Side of your head and back of your neck sounds like sweat to me. I tend to get acne on my back and butt from running clothes :dunno:
