Anemia Treatment And Acne?

3 posts in this topic

So, I'm anemic (probably because of my baaad diet)

I'm starting to take a multivitamin which has iron, B12 and many other vitamins but I made sure it had no you think it will make my acne worse? I heard iodine is the main culprit for breakouts caused by multivitamins

I'm kinda anemic too, and the supplement made me break out, unfortunately. I'm trying to have a better diet, eat iron rich foods like liver, beef, sardines (i hate fish though), beans etc. But the level of my red blood cells wasn't very dangerously low - just if I continued having the diet I had, I would end up having serious problems.

But try taking supplements and see how your body reacts, maybe you're also better off getting your vitamins with food, than synthetic ones.
