    After 2 weeks of using whey protein 24 grams/day with water my back started to break out slightly. Im I allergic? or anyone else having the same problem? :squint:

    I get a lot of bacne and slightly more frequent facial breakouts which are pretty consistent to my whey intake. If I stop taking it for a few weeks it will clear right up.


    It doesn't bother me too much though.

    I dont see how that could be possible... Its probably just a coincidence, people always say certain foods give them acne when in reality research shows that diet doesnt really affect that...

    stay clean and drink lots of water. If problem persists see your doctor for treatment.

    i dont have a problem with whey protein cauing me acne,but if i do start to flare up it is because of excess sugar and lack of water. I drink about 2-3 servings of whey protein a day and it doenst affect me. Eat healthy,SLEEP and stay active. I forget to mention sleep is a big thing for myself as well. If i dont get enough sleep, i will tend to break out much more if i continue that pattern.

    It doesn't cause acne, but things can affect and increase acne for some.

    I know for a fact caffeine does it for me
