Whey is a digestible protein that is found in milk. It has grown in popularity as a dietary supplement to improve muscle strength. However, it has also been shown to create or exacerbate acne. Often, whey-induced acne has poor or no response to regular treatments. Another issue with whey is that it can have detrimental affects on your liver, including liver failure and even death.
If you have acne and you’re using whey protein… STOP! Call Dr. Lily Talakoub and set up an appointment for treatment!
