If there's a difference - which is the better for helping out with acne, Zinc Gluconate or Zinc Oxide?

I bought some new earlier to replace the one I had already that I'd used up, but didn't notice the difference until I read the ingredients when I got home.

Thanks.

Has whichever was first been working for you? Also, do you use only zinc or other things as well?

I just bought some zinc w/ gluconate and i am wondering if there is a limit for what i should take.

I know in the back it says 1 tablet daily but i want to take more so hopefully it works faster and maybe better.

I have a bad habit of over doing things.

What if i look like 4 tablets a day, would that be bad for me?

This goes for Vitamin E also, what is the limit for that one, i take like 4-5 capsules a day.

Help me out!

I have heard that OptiZinc form (not brand) is best cause it's most easily absorbed. It is the kind found in ZMA but I think it is also sold separately. Don't exceed 100mg in a day and don't take it with any kind of calcium or calcium rich food as it will decrease absorption.
