Chelated Zinc Bringing My Acne To The Surface?

Liam Foster


Hello again. So last thursday i purchased 100 50mg chelated zinc tablets after reading a lot of great reviews on it working really well on cystic acne and scars etc. Now, i have been taking 1 tablet each day now since last thursday and it's now wednesday. I can't really say i see an improvement, however i have 2 huge big inflamed spots on both of my cheeks. If anyone who has taken chelated zinc in this much form of 50mg and had success could you please tell me how long it takes. Im wondering if the zinc is bringing the acne to the surface in other words getting worse before it gets better theory. I remember when i was 16 and i had to take zineryt and that worked like magic! But that too got made my acne worse before it got better. So i was just wondering, are these inflamed pimples being brung out to the surface before the zinc gets to work and starts to heal the immune system and the skin? Thoughts would be appreciated! :)

hmm not sure about this one.

zinc shouldn't really cause any issues but never say never.

keep on going for a few days and see if anything else crops up or changes and then make note of it.
