Vitamins cause acne

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamins cause acne


Avatar n tn I agree- I dont think think a lack of vitamins would cause acne- but it doesnt hurt to take vitamins just for healthy living! I use and love proactiv. I'm a 24/f and I also suffer from breakouts and proactiv works really well. Try drinking a lot of water too- it really helps clear up your skin! I know accutane works- but I also know a lot of people who have suffered some adverse reactions from it. i would search www.adverse-drug-reaction.
Avatar n tn Hello, A complete evaluation is necessary for determining the correct cause of your symptoms.Mesigyna can cause menstrual irregularities, acne, weight gain/loss, headaches and nausea and many more side effects. Only a complete history and physical examination can determine whether the symptoms experienced by you are due to the contraceptive injection or some other cause. It is suggested to consult a doctor and get evaluated.
Avatar f tn ✰ Eat healthier; Avoid all fatty or sugary food and drinks. ✰ Omega3; Helps maintain healthy skin (prevents acne, too!), hair and nails. Most easily found in salmon, cod, and tuna, but if you aren't a fan of fish supplement tablets work just as well! ✰ Milk is not your friend; Milk contains certain hormones that can cause acne breakouts. That doesn't mean that you should not drink milk all together, just don't drink more than a glass of milk a day.
10028419 tn?1416841704 Im guessing its my hormones from the pregnancy and maybe my vitamins because biotin has always broke me out. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do or what can help my problem? I use Olay cleanser and I recently stopped using my clean and clean moisturizer cause I felt like it was making it works. Help!!
Avatar f tn I have tried acne products from a to z, herbal vitamins, regular vitamins, changing my diet, have done hours of research on acne, and have tried hormon regulaters. I have a doctors appointment coming up I will post what they tell me and the options they give me.
Avatar n tn Hello. I have Acne. Not much. How can I get rid of it? What best works?

Avatar n tn Think about what changed when you turned 20-- changes in your diet, cleansing routine and intake of any medications or vitamins. The tricky part about mysterious acne is that it can be one slight change in any of these areas (including hormones) that alters the balance of your skin. I'm sure with some brainstorming and experimentation you will figure out the cause.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had acne from puberty until about age 30 when I heard that zinc deficiency can cause acne. I rushed out and bought zinc supplement tablets and my acne cleared up and has never returned!
Avatar f tn Zinc acts like an antibiotic as well as a promotor of healing, and it works particularly well against acne and those little white spots some of us get on our fingernails. I had horrible acne and vitamins did the trick for me. And my nails. Try the vitamins/zinc and also keep your hair and hands away from your face as much as possible. Good luck.
Avatar m tn Dear sir iam suffering with mild acne and mild swelling , when i applied cosmetics are any other ointments relating to acne (ie: clyndamycin and others ) to my skin it will shows negative effect on my skin , so please tell me the oral (tablets) medicine to make my skin soft and shine.
Avatar m tn Hi I posted a while ago about having cystic and mild adult acne and all the problems I went through since I was a teenager. I think I finally found the answer. I went to a natropath and found that gluten is a big cause for acne. I have always had terrible IBS from all the antibiotics and medication I've been on. People with adult acne may find that they are either gluten or lactose intolerant so try to stay away from dairy and gluten products.
Avatar n tn I noticed over spring break a small amount of acne (she had been acne free for years). Then when she came home in May the acne started getting worse. She upped her adderall because of training/games and a new job. So she was basically taking it almost every day. Her face broke out horribly. Worse it has ever been. I took her to two dermatologists. Nothing was helping. It was steadily getting worse.
Avatar n tn Engage in a diet that is low in sugar and fat but is rich in vitamins. This prevents acne by preventing the buildup of excess oil on the skin. Also refrain from touching or squeezing your shoulder acne. Also try to keep your hair free of dandruff by using good antidandruff shampoos. You can also apply benzoyl peroxide creams or clindamycin cream on the acne. If the symptoms persist, then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist then.
Avatar n tn A prescription strength topical retinoid such as Retin-a (tretinoin) or Differin (adapalene) has anti-inflammatory properties and will heal active acne, post acne redness and raised scars. These can cause a bit of irritation at first so use a bland soap-free cleanser such as La Roche-Posay Physiological gel. Apply a couple of times a week at first and gradually increase to nightly use. How long have you had these scars for?
Avatar f tn 9 weeks along and I've been breaking out like there's no tomorrow. I use to break out like this before I started my period. I'm only assuming it's from my hormones and/or the vitamins I'm taking. Either way, I disapprove.
Avatar n tn I do not like the use of drugs to treat acne. They are very expensive and rarely work well. I use Zero Zitz Emergency Power, Queen Helene`s Mint Julep Mask, and the NG Acne Treatment System. I have been acne-free for two years now. If I ever do get a blemish I use the NG Acne Spot Corrector and the blemish disappears within a few days. Deva Borage Oil is also very good in helping to prevent acne from the inside out.
651194 tn?1224034919 unfortunately a lot of people will try to defend Accutane and say "it was the acne that caused the depression not the Accutane. The company Roche who make Accutane also come out with statements like "people who suffer with acne are at a higher risk of depression, because acne can affect self esteem".
Avatar f tn This is an excellent question. Vitamins and isotretinoin can be tricky. B12 in general can actually be traced to acne flare ups. Isotretinoin can decrease B12 levels. Low B12 can be problematic. But generally is isn't recommended (B12) to be taken with Isotretinoin very often. I am glad you are followed by a doctor, is he the one who prescribed the isotretinioin? And why are you having the B12 added? I would talk to them about it as well as ask your usual pharmacist.
Avatar f tn I'm seventeen and have been seeing a dermatologist since I was fifteen. I'm currently on Duac topical gel + Differin .3. These worked for a little while but they just didn't stop my cystic acne which can just be a monster, so my dermo prescribed an oral antibiotic. I know some people will go on and on about the harmful effects of antibiotics for long term use, but because my cystic acne was extremely painful and scaring, I felt that I no other option.
698356 tn?1240150727 I know the endocrine system is connected and relies on gastrointestinal functions (specifically absorption of vitamins and minerals) to work properly. I'm looking for a root cause. I've been treating symptom after symptom for over a decade. I've never had regular menstrual cycles and have been on birth control for nearly a decade to regulate them.
Avatar f tn Hello, Acne is due to an overactivity and plugging of the oil glands.The main cause of acne is increased levels of hormones during adolescence. Just keep you face clean by washing with a mild soap atleast twice a day.Pat it dry and do not rub it.Avoid picking or pressing the acne.You can also use Benzoyl peroxide 5% lotion or gel or clindamycin cream once at bedtime. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of your face.
