Unhappy RECENTLY NEW VEGAN - Acne, Stomach Issue!

Hi everyone! Ive been vegan since about the end of October, Early November.
Ive noticed ive had an increase in acne on my face and sharp pains around my stomach area sometimes after I eat. Im not sure why, but if anyone else has experienced this, please let me know and what you might have done to fix these issues!

Ugh, I'm sorry to hear that you're having these issues.


The risk factors for acne include hormonal changes, family history, contact with greasy/oily substances, friction or pressure on your skin, or stress: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-c...s/con-20020580 . Also, taking very high dosages of vitamin B12 may contribute to acne: http://www.veganhealth.org/b12/rec . However, being vegetarian or vegan is not a risk factor for acne - my acne disappeared when I became vegan. Are you experiencing stress related to your transition to veganism?


Stomach pain can be caused by many things. Why don't you make an appointment with a doctor? If you are a university student, you can see a doctor for free by going to your school's Student Health Center.

Hi and welcome. My suggestions are to chew your food very well, more than you think necessary, and drink lots of water.

Going from your other post about boyfriend problems, I'd say that's where the trouble lies - stress! Smaller meals but more often is something to try too.
