Patient

Q: Does peanut butter cause acne? :( I love peanut butter
I've heard it does, but I also heard that it has lots of proteins and I've eaten up to a full jar in a week!

Doctor

A:   Hello thanks for your health query on ATD

The acne is caused by hormonal & familial factors.Peanut butter per se does not cause acne.But in some susceptible persons some foods may exacerbate the acne. Like some persons develop more acne lesions if they eat chocolate or drink milk.
To check this stop taking peanut butter for few days & check severity. Again restart peanut butter & notice the severity.

Hope you got me.
