I bought some MSM a few weeks ago. I'm not really qualified to say much about it because I only took it for a few days, but I swore it was making my acne worse (and that's why I stopped).

Hey.

I am sensitive to raw onions which have sulfur and MSN never really helped me. If you have burning in your stomach, I'd stop for now.

F IT i still need more opinions on this, but for now ill stop everyday i take it i seem to break out and its not the food cause ive been eating the same healthy diet since jan and it was working all good

I took it several years ago and it gave me very big and painful zits on my neck. Couldn't figure out what was going on untill I ran out and didn't replace them, I cleared up within a week. Just my experience with it. Elf

I broke out with more cystic acne after taking 1-3 grams for a couple weeks. If I wasn't so prone to scarring I would have rode it out, but I didn't think it was worth the risk. I have heard that a detox phase is common, but I don't know how long it lasts. I do use a msm liposome lotion everyday and haven't noticed anything bad from that -- it actually makes my skin look more radiant, but it does not prevent break outs.

There's no doubt about it being safe. I read on some website that it had been tested taking up to 100 grams and no negative side effects. Still, what it does for acne is questionable.

I didn't really notice MSM giving me any breakouts, I already had breakouts before trying it.

It just tasted nasty to me.

I did found that I still have some left.

I had 16 oz of this stuff.

And I have used about 2/5th of that.

And I never noticed anything.

I thought that it would help with my dry skin, to give it some elastic stuff. It's suppose to help your tissues and stuff.

I don't know, reading this here, I might not bother with it.

Besides, I eat eggs everyday. Maybe I have no use for this stuff.

I started taking MSM last summer and had an increase in acne all over my back, mostly non-inflamed and possibly keratosis pilaris, but with some larger somewhat inflamed pimples on the back of my neck. All of that was constant. I also intermittently got cysts on my neck, jawline and back.

I suspected other causes for many months, then finally decided to cut out the MSM and it all cleared up. And I wasn't even taking a large dose or taking it daily.

i've been taking msm for almost 3 years and it doesn't affect my acne. I just began taking because I am prone to keloids and i read that msm can help people with keloids.
