I'm 23 years old and suffer from moderate acne/oily skin. I've had a LOT of sad stories with things like accutane/minocycline etc, but that's not important at the moment. In my current regimen, I use a benzoyl peroxide soap only at night and then cover with tretinoin .025% cream, which moderately works. However, the only times I have been able to clear my acne completely are when I'm taking something systemically. I started taking 25mg of Zinc once a day about a week ago, and even though it worked perfectly on my skin, my hair started falling out. I have thin hair to begin with, so it truly is a nightmare for me to go through this, although I'm positive it will grow back. All of this leads me to my question - are there ANY vitamins or minerals out there that do not have ANY history of causing hair loss? I've been doing some research, but it seems that to one extent or the other, most vitamins and minerals have been known to cause hair shedding at high doses, and with how my body reacts to vitamins, I don't even want to start those at low doses.
So overall, is there ANYTHING that I can take at low doses that is not known to cause any hair loss whatsoever? Thanks a lot.
P.S. I also eat extremely well - very low sugars, low dairy, high protein, low carbs.
