30 Bananas a Day!

I'm in my freshman year of college--moved from Florida to Austin, Texas--and I've been on this lifestyle for at least two or three years now. Despite having dermatillomania ("skin-picking disorder"), I haven't had much bad acne since starting this lifestyle, just little stuff from picking my face all the time. But all of a sudden I'm getting these big, red, swollen, painful pimples on my nose and chin! I don't know where they're coming from, and I'm having trouble not picking them--they hurt, and they look really obnoxious.

Does anyone have any idea if this might be caused by something in my lifestyle habits, or if there's anything I can do to fix it? Of course, many variables have changed since moving to Austin, so in case any of them matter, here are the ones I can think of:

-Drier weather

-Many of my meals are in the cafeteria (because it's all-you-can-eat and relatively cheap), so I've been eating lots of cantaloupe and honeydew and raisins (but I still eat 3000+ cals a day). I've also been putting red vinegar on most of my salads, since I have a hard time enjoying dry greens.

-Less sleep, but not too bad, about 8 hours per night

-Stuffy dorm room (bad ventilation)

-Sometimes eat later than usual (8 pm at the latest)

That's all I can think of for now. Anyone have any ideas?

Really? Is that the only reason? I've never been one to believe something without substantial evidence. I'm just having a hard time believing the whole "detox" thing when it occurs years later.

I would say the vinegar.

Vegetables / fruit leave an alkaline body. While vinegar is complete acid and will create an acid / mucus body. Mucus is pretty much what comes out of pimples, the pus.

I totally agree on this. Vinegar is toxic to the body and can cause lots of symptoms, especially after two years on a very clean diet...
