    I'm glad this topic was so important that it required two separate threads

    Not unpossible, but what other dairy are you eating? Casein is far more allergenic than whey.

    diet has almost no correlation to acne. more likely what happened was that you started training encouraging horomone production/imbalance causing the bacne.

    :eek3: I haven't had my back break out like this since I was 16 years old. I've been racking my brain trying to figure it out, but I never thought it was the whey protein. I've been doing nothing different in terms of hygeine and haven't had any sort of back acne in 8 years.

    Actually, this isn't totally true. If you have food allergies, one of the manifestations can be acne. For me, it turned out my acne was a dairy allergy and cutting out everything except whey protein cleared it up immensely. Casein is the protein most people are likely to react to.
