It's been a while since I've updated. I'm still breaking out in cystic pimples on chin. The only reprieve from the breakouts is when I'm on my period. I order Vital Nutrients Niacinamide 750 mg capsules from Amazon... I'll see if that will help.

Still breaking out on my chin in Cystic acne 10 days before period. Went to the Derm beginning of this month and she prescribed me MetroGel and Doxycycline. Refused the antibiotics since it never works and just kills my stomach. I picked up the Metrogel today and will some research to see if it's compatible with Hyaluronic Acid. Also, started taking Herpanacine. I'm concerned about Vitamin A overdosing. I've been taking it 6 times a day sporadically. I'm going to try to be consistent for four weeks and wean myself down to two a day.

According to this site: http://www.wholehealthinsider.com/newsletter/taking-high-doses-five-supplements-harm-good/

"There is a place for high-dose vitamin A taken over a short time. Mega doses of vitamin A—up to 100,000 IU per day for four weeks, 75,000 IU daily for two to four weeks thereafter, then 50,000 IU daily for another two to four weeks—are often recommended by naturopathic and alternative doctors to help improve acne. You should only take these high doses of vitamin A under supervision of a physician."

  1. The Mayo Clinic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/vitamin-a/dosing/hrb-20060201.

Has anyone else tried Vitamin A megadosing? It's essentially the poor man's version of Accutane.

I e-mailed Diamond Formula's and this is their response to Hypervitaminosis A:

"There is no risk of Vitamin A toxicity as the only type of A that Dr. Diamond uses in our formulas is Beta-Carotene and it is completely safe. With Beta Carotene, you can safely and effectively take higher dosages with no negative side affects.  Dr. Diamond did not use straight Vitamin A because of it danger with excessive, long term usage. These are not issues with Beta Carotene.

 
So, yes, you are completely safe to use 6 Herpanacine a day for a severe condition at the beginning. Once your condition has cleared, you certainly can go down in dosage also.  
 
As far as fish oil, yes, Herpanacine Skin Support can definitely be taken with fish oil. "

Skin is pretty clear. Went to my 6 month dental cleaning today and the hygienist commented how great my skin looked under the unforgiving light. I've been taking the herpanacine and fish oil before my meals so the vitamins digest better. In the mornings, I've been eating avocados and a pint of blueberries and that seems to help as well. I stopped using Cerave and replaced it with MUAC Argan oil to moisturize. I've also eliminated the use of my clarisonic as well and I stopped breaking out on my chin.

Spoke too soon. Broke out in a huge cystic pimple on my chin. Must have been from cheating. I had tres leches, rustic bakery soughdough flatbread crackers, grandma's mini vanilla cream cookies. I also finished my blueberry stash.

Just finished my period and I broke out like crazy on my chin. It maybe attributed to the sugar cookies and macaroons I consumed. I have been reading articles about gut-brain-skin link. I'm considering taking probiotics. 

I think I have androgenetic acne. I've been experiencing tremendous hair loss for about a year now.
