So, I'm anemic (probably because of my baaad diet)

I'm starting to take a multivitamin which has iron, B12 and many other vitamins but I made sure it had no iodine...do you think it will make my acne worse? I heard iodine is the main culprit for breakouts caused by multivitamins

It may make your acne worse, that's quite possible.

I'm kinda anemic too, and the supplement made me break out, unfortunately. I'm trying to have a better diet, eat iron rich foods like liver, beef, sardines (i hate fish though), beans  etc. But the level of my red blood cells wasn't very dangerously low - just if I continued having the diet I had, I would end up having serious problems.
But try taking supplements and see how your body reacts, maybe you're also better off getting your vitamins with food, than synthetic ones.
