So I have an ai disease called granuloma annulare where the skin gets inflamed, but it's not that bad. I've.had it since I was a child. I'm wondering if raw dairy is good or bad. I've been drinking raw jersey cow milk for a while and I love it. However, on one end you have the anti dairy people then you have groups like the Amish who have hardly any asthma or autoimmune issues. The next problem is the "sweat acne" I have which is an overgrowth of the malasezzia yeast. I eat pastured meats and eggs. I am consuming raw dairy, but I can't get clear skin. I don't drink anything but water and raw milk. I have raw kefir too. I work out frequently, and I am very muscular. This sweat acne is driving me insane. I quit protein shakes. I don't take creatine. I've dabbled with cod liver oil and biokult probiotics. So you guys think I should do paleo autoimmune? There's also some ppl that say saturated fat make sweat acne worse so I'm kind of stuck. Also if I go for Paip, I lift a lot not know if I could maintain mass without dairy and eggs. Anyways, I really appreciate any of your responses.

I don't think so.... I've been dx with 2 autoimmune diseases and for about 6 months I cut out dairy. (Unless accident at restaurants something cooked in butter). but no dairy at all, not even ghee.
So in January I started drinking raw milk and having raw butter and I did not develop any inflammatory signs or symptoms. Which would always be some sort of tendonitis in my Achilles or knee, and bad acne. However, I haven't had conventional dairy. I did notice some achy knees with raw cheese. But NOT raw milk or raw butter. Grass fed regular butter & Jeni's grass fed icecream don't bother me either ;)
and I had to stop exercising for other reasons but when I stopped crossfit, my acne went away. So my acne was not related to the raw dairy. This has taken a very long time for me to figure out. Maybe because I did eliminate it and healed my leaky gut... I hope :)
