Hmmm - just wondering - is oily skin / acne common in PwMS? Could it be a sign of underlying issues with lipid metabolism that might contribute to the likelihood of developing MS? Did anyone on the OMS forum have dry skin before starting the OMS programme, or clear skin with few/no spots?
Hi, thanks everyone for your feedback.
I did watch a clip yesterday where someone mentioned flaxseed as also potentially making acne worse! I have been taking this for years though. Re. the soya milk there was one particular article by a doctor listing a huge range of problems caused by it, but you have to be so careful about what you read and take on board, I will try and research the author a bit more (maybe he is being commissioned by the national dairy milk board ha ha!).
I don't like rice milk and I never consume oats as I was told I was allergic to them many years ago. I guess I will have to give almond milk a try.
LIke some of you mention, it could be a combination of flaxseed, soya, fish oil supplements plus oily fish. I am still very much finding my way with the diet as originally you could eat chicken and now George recommends to cut this out as well so it takes some getting used to! Maybe the soya milk just isn't compatible with my body. I will cut it out for a couple of months and see what happens to my skin, its not nice being 48 and having big pustules on your face! (I have had acne since I was 19 but its got much worse again).
