I was suffering from a cold/flu/virus/something and my mother and doctor suggested that I take vitamin C. I took it for a few days, and I ended up breaking out (3 big pimples) while I was home sick. Could it be the vitamin C that did it? I am a female and I also take birth control. Is there some correlation?

There's no doubt that vitamin C, although an "anti-oxidant" can become a "pro-oxidant" in certain conditions, but I haven't fully read up on that and I don't know if it would reflect in acne, except for maybe an immune response or something maybe. ??? Its a mystery. Maybe alternativista knows more, as citrus was her secret problem.
