zinc = peeling?

i just recently started taking zinc picolinate supplements since i read all the great things about them. i take those along with doryx and ziana. i've only been taking the pills for about 3 days and my skin has started peeling and is very flakey out of nowhere, and only in certain places (near my mouth and cheeks) where oil isn't generally a problem for me. i have a very oily t-zone and generally only have 4 pimples at a time (on a good day). my question is, has anyone else experienced this when first starting to take zinc? it seems to have really helped with the color of my skin. i was just wondering if this is normal and will go away once my skin gets used to the supplements. TIA.
