In Topic: What Cured My Acne - Alive Multivitamin

23 March 2015 - 06:53 PM

It is probably Vitamin A that has a positive effect on your acne, not the multivitamin.


Maybe, and it's a possiblity, but I'm more inclined to belive that its the mutlivitamin. Before I started taking it, I was taking my normal 30,000 IU of Vitamin A, 800 IU of Vitamin E, 30 mg of Zinc, 5,000 of Vitamin D, some alcillinpill, and none of those things by themselves or in combination with one another was enough to stop my acne from coming back once I stop taking my daily amoxicillin pill. It wasn't until I started the multivitamin that I didn't have to take the amoxicillin anymore.


Normally in less than a week of trying something, my acne would come back. But a week pasted of me being on my multivitamin, and nothing. 2 weeks pasted, and nothing. 1 month, 2 months, and still nothing.


I believe vitamin A is playing a role in it, that's why I continue to take the 30,000 IU along with the multivitamin.

I just started on amoxicillin. How long did it take for u to see results do u remember?


Within 2 to 3 months my acne was gone. I still had scaring and whatnot, but that healed within a month or so. The scaring on my back didn't really clear, but I don't get cyst back there anymore, so I'm good.


Hope you see good results.

In Topic: Amoxicillin Replacement?

what other antibiotics have you tried?  is the amoxcillin still working? Why switch if it is? Ideally you dont wanna be on antibiotics forever, but Im in the same boat you are; Id rather have better skin and deal w/ any potential effects when and if there is any.  Bactrim is a strong antibiotic that works miraculously for some people, but it is highly allergic to many people unfortunately


Other than the ones I have listed, I haven't really tried anything else other than commercial acne products.


My amoxicillin is still working, but I would really like to find something that gets rid of my acne and not just supresses it, if that makes any sense. The moment I stop taking amoxicillin everything starts to come back. I hoping to find somekind of alternative that gets rid of my acne in which it supresses it like amoxicillin, but also heals my body so it won't produce more. That's pretty much the main reason why I've been resorting to vitamins and whatnot as replacements. I'm trying to create an environemnt in my body in which acne cannot thrive. 


Thanks for recommending bactrim. I'll look into it.
