So I came across an article on how Vitamin D3 can help clear acne. So I immediately ordered me a Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 5000 IU Softgels.
And its been three days i have been takin them. and I started to notice my face swell up slightly! So I read up online about adverse reactions of D3 and I found this -
"Allergic reactions are the only adverse effect created by vitamin D3 not related to overdosing. Rashes, severe dizziness, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face, tongue, or throat are all signs of an allergy and require immediate medical attention."
Now I am scared to try it.
I mean I haven't had the other effects like dizziness, rashes or swelling of the tongue or throat, its just that my face is puffy. And also, I live in a sunny place. But I'm out on the sun for like 15 minutes a day Maximum. So Could this be a Vitamin D Overdose?
Is there a way I can make it go away? - Take lower Mgs? - Fewer times a week? - Exercise?
Has anyone else experienced Vit D3 Allergy?
I bought my bottle very recently and I would be disappointed to see it go waste!!!

Any time you add a supplement it can change subtle things about your body. The vitamin D may be making you retain water a little more than usual. If it bothers you, just take it fewer times a week and try to gradually build up to higher dosages.

I have had amazing results taking Vitamin D so I would stick with it. Perhaps you should try changing to a lower dosage tablet form. I am taking 1000IU in tablet form and it has completely eliminated my oily skin and acne. I posted my story earlier today about the amazing cure Vitamin D has been for me.
