How much zinc should you take a day for moderate acne? Also what is the best form and what can I get that I do not swallow, as I can't swallow tablets? Thanks

50mg twice daily with meal for 3 months. If you still want to take it after 3 months then reduce to 50mg once daily, and you should take 3-5mg of copper while you are at it. Not sure of the form, the only zinc I used was for a cold, but make sure the zinc isnt labeled as "zinc sulfate."

you can buy zinc lozenges either in a health food store or online. theyre tablets you suck on and let dissolve in your month. the ones i take have 23 mg of zinc gluconate and i take 2 per day.
