Why do I break out when taking fish oil

Recommended Posts

I was doing the whole fish oil thing taking 2 with every meal and I just noticed my skin getting worse after 2 months so I stopped and now I'm not breaking out as bad. I started again to make sure that was it and what do ya know? I started to break out yet again. How come you guys get clear off them and I dont?

I noticed a similar thing when I tried to take large amounts of fish oil.

1 gelcap (1000mg) per day seems fine, but anything over 3 per day and I had significant breakouts that were uncharacteristic for me.

crappy product quality ?

i see no reason why fish oil would be detrimental for you unless you have some hidden allergy

Well I have now been off of them for 5 days and my face got better. For some reason it makes me have inflamed pimples and cysts. Is it because of the iodine? LOL I really don't even know if there is iodine in them but I know fish contains iodine. I know I can't eat shrimp bc they make me break out!!

yeah fish oil has always broken me out as well. I get zits around the neck from it. Maybe I had too much but if it has the potential to zit me up then i dont think i want any of it in my system.
