It's probably hormonal. Also do you do a lot of stuff outside? Sports, run,etc?

Not a ton, but I enjoy sitting outside a lot

Do you have any increased stress during this period or play sports during this time?

Right now is very stressful for me but the fact that it started for me on Saturday when I wasn't stressed makes me think it's not stress related. Well, that and the fact that it's happened this time of year before

Where do you live? If it's winter maybe a d3 deficiency?  There's plenty of people that have had great success with it.

I live in Connecticut. I've been taking 4000iu of D3 daily since last August so it can't be that. I also know I have seasonal allergies, but only to one type of tree and an antihistamine takes care of it

In Topic: Switching From 10% To 2.5% Benzoyl Peroixde

as long as you're happy with your current situation, don't switch. For most people, 10% BP can only be viably used as a spot treatment as best while 2.5 produces amazing results for their other needs. That said, if 10% BP is working for you, just stick with what works.

In Topic: Pantothenic Acid (B5) Log

Please for the love of god LOWER YOUR DOSAGE! I am supplicating you! I took 5g daily for three months and my hair started falling out. I was one of the lucky ones and my hair came back. I stopped taking B5 and obviously my acne came back, but it struck back with a  persistent vengeance that I had never seen. I started taking a food based multivitamin with vitamin B5 in it (only 50mg) with a host of other things. My skin has cleared up tremendously. I can give you the name of the vitamin if you want, but whatever you do, I am imploring you that you drastically reduce your dosage. I'm a pretty good source on anything B5 so please message me or something before you do perminate damage to your body.

The real question is did the B5 work? Also it should be noted

Toxicity of pantothenic acid is unlikely. In fact, no Tolerable Upper Level Intake (UL) has been established for the vitamin. Large doses of the vitamin, when ingested, have no reported side effects and massive doses (e.g., 10 g/day) may only yield mild intestinal distress, and diarrhea at worst.

Are you sure you haven't developed Celiac disease or IBS or IBD? It's easy to blame other things on those.

Ps. Did the b5 really work? I want to try it.

 It does but megadosing will make your hair fallout lol. I think its safe for like two weeks and then reduce your dosage

In Topic: Benzoyl Peroxide Or Salicyclic Acid For Me?

08 September 2013 - 07:36 PM

If you only ever get nothing more severe than the occasional  medium-sized whitehead I'd recommend Salicylic acid. However, if its anything more than that, I would go for 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. So really, unless you have very mild acne and are not prone to a cyst every now and again, benzoyl peroxide is the better option. Salicylic acid is best for those with light acne while those that can get (not even necessarily often though but have the ability to) get either a large, bulbous swelling white head, or a cyst every so often. I find that paring this with a food-derived multivitamin and some vitamin D3 is the recipe for clarity.
