In Topic: People Who Break Out From Probiotics

23 August 2014 - 07:34 AM

So I just tried Elixa. Gave me the worst breakout I've had all year.

Personally I think it's strange for a product to claim "The #1 probiotic in the world" and yet hasn't moved past selling on eBay.

I'm so tired of wasting all of my money on an endless stream of useless products. In this case, it actually made everything worse.
Especially after reading Listener's posts - I can't find any research that claims gut flora has anything to do with regulating sebum production (oily skin here). This is all very sketchy.

Can you give us another update on this? This is super interesting to me. I've never seen a 3-day probiotic nuke program before.

Are you seriously saying that it returned your sebum production to normal? That's a pretty large claim.

I used to have exactly the same thing. Try Epiduo. Trust me.

 

I've tried everything else - the entire spectrum of antibiotics and accutane as well. Epiduo has done an amazing job for me.

I would suggest you listen to your body and trust your gut when you start taking it. I had pretty bad side effects only 6 days in, and had to stop. I'd hate to see other people go through what I did.

Is taking 40mg every other day an option? I just wasted $200 on my 30 day supply

 

EDIT: Still feeling horrible from last night's pill. I think it's also high blood pressure - I can feel this "whoosh" going throughout my entire body and through my ears. I'm definitely stopping this for good.

 

I don't know if it's because I'm underweight at 6' 150lbs, my body just can't handle this. I'd also like to note that I was already seeing a huge improvement in my skin - it seems like my body reacted way faster than most people. My skin is looking pretty awesome right now. I'd like to hear if any others out there had extremely fast reactions as well.
