It's been 6 weeks and after still waking up today with new pimples i have decided that I have had enough. Today is my last day of taking zinc, and I am already on birth control (which mostly helps with my acne), and I will continue with that. It was definitely not worth breaking out constantly for 6 weeks, only to find that i would have been better of without it.

Thanks for your replies! The pimples around my chin are healing now, just got heaps of red marks, still got like two active pimples but it's much better than before. @rjo I experienced the same thing with the really sudden break out, within like 1-2 days my skin had erupted. I am still taking zinc because i have come to far to give up now, and the pimples are healing. I will keep you posted!

I have also experienced breaking out from zinc! I have been searching frantically trying to figure out if i should continue? I am up to my 4th week of taking zinc but I don't know how much more i can take. I have big red pimples all around my chin and it is driving me nuts! What happened when you went off zinc, did your skin clear? My skin was also not that bad when I began so I'm starting to wonder if i made the right choice. Do you think it could be the purging stage?
