11079760 tn?1483386130 I've never heard that vitamin D is beneficial to hair and skin. I would ask a doctor or pharmacist about it. I noticed you say you were prescribed vitamin D2. Any idea why? I ask because I believe it's been established that D3 is more effective in raising serum level of D. Just curious.
5143317 tn?1383747820 I now take progesterone caps at night (which helps me sleep) and cream during the day. My vitamin D and C levels were bottomed out and cortisol was screaming high. Just my experience only and something to maybe help you. Women to women website is a great help.
4754423 tn?1364109717 do take 4...basicly double doze for a one month...vitamin D is known as the most important for skin functioning properly...and to keep your imune system doing well !and the last thing, you might have a fungi on your lips, you can catch it from different things- kissing, using cutlery in restaurants and drinking from their glasses...if you can not avoid it, use strow instead at least for drinks.
Avatar f tn Since the itchiness went away while you were taking the multi (which would contain, both B vitamins and vitamin D), you should talk to your doctor and see if you can start it again. Hypothyroidism can also cause dry itchy skin and even though your thyroid labs might be in range, doesn't mean it's normal for you since we're all different.
Avatar m tn I had muscle cramps, fatigue, dry skin .... the calcium helps the Vitamin D or D3 absorb and most have calcium diphosphate included I think. Definitely speak with your doctor ... Vitamin D can be toxic if taken too much and what's too much for one is different than another person depending on your personal levels.

Avatar f tn I made appointments with both because I need this problem fixed. I found out yesterday that I have a very low Vitamin D and Calcium. I now take Vitamin D 50,000IU for 12 weeks, Selenium 100 mg and Fish Oil 1000 mg on top of a multi. Not sure what the Selenium and Fish Oil is for? As for my face, I have eliminated the Witch Hazel. It just seemed to dry my face more. I will see the Dermatologist in two weeks. Thanks for the info, I will update after my appointments.

Avatar n tn Fresh fruit contains vitamin C, eggs, milk, butter and fortified cereals contain vitamin D; your skin will also make Vitamin D when you expose it to sunshine. This is why this vitamin (vitamin D) is referred to as the Sunshine Vitamin. Cut out the junk food and eat plenty of fresh fruit and veg, fish, chicken, and so on. I am sure that you will be able to find more information on the web about these vitamins (my memory is a bit foggy tonight). Best wishes.
1156171 tn?1273087876 Peroxide GEL -thinly applied, and then Neutrogena oil free moisturizer. Be sure to let skin dry after each thing..... wash- dry, BP - then dry, then moisturizer - very important! He also takes a magnesium (250 mg), Zinc, and around 1000 IUs of D a day. He takes 2 plain fish oil - no cod liver oil! Too much vitamin A might interfere with D absorbing. I am having his blood checked to make sure he doesn't do too much or if he is low.
4939681 tn?1361299299 Also, my skin condition is the exact opposite of myxedema. My skin is dry and very thin and pliable... pretty much like thin bread dough. When pinched it takes a while to flatten back out, much like someone who is dehydrated, but I'm thirsty all the time and drink A LOT of water.
Avatar f tn Just go in the sun daily for at least 15 mins and drink milk fortified with vitamin D and weekend by the beach. so far the concentration problem/headache/depression resolved. muscle weakness is better but not really recovered. appetite better but not back to normal. rest of symptoms including dry hair is still there but at least is back to growing. recovery is usually slow per the other posts and it can take 6-12 for complete recovery. so yeah dry thinning hair could be related to vitamin D.

Avatar f tn Symptoms of hypothyroidism are in the hundreds but includes fatigue (also a vitamin D deficiency symptom), dry skin, joint pain (also a vitamin D deficiency symptom), tinnitus, fullness in the ears, vertigo, weight gain. Tests for thyroid disease include TSH, free T4, free T3, thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb) and thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb).
Avatar f tn My aunty who is a bit older than you and was prescribed with calcium and Vitamin D had the same problem. She was advised to stop taking the Vitamin D and her symptoms cleared. If the doctor has prescribed the vitamin for you, you will need to discuss this with him. It is likely that you do not need to take any supplements of this Vitamin and a blood test would show the amount in your body. You can overdose the body with Vitamin D. This is fat soluble vitamin which is stored in the liver.
Avatar m tn I have two problems - dry skin and insomnia, listing them both since I am not sure if they are related. The dry skin problem is nothing new I have had dry skin (extreme dandruff) on scalp, beard, etc. but the problem has gotten worse lately. lately the skin under chin becomes reddish (raw) easily after shaving and burns slightly.

Avatar n tn Vitamin D is also known as sunshine vitamin because it has direct relationship to sunlight. It is an essential, fat-soluble vitamin responsible for a variety of body functions. The inadequate levels of the vitamin leads to type 2 diabetes, can cause itchiness. Many patient with Vitamin D deficiency are advised to have direct sunlight for 15 minutes, 3 days a week and doctors recommend you, not to use sunscreen. This may lead to itchiness on your skin.
