  1. This thread contains multiple possibly unrelated problems. Some of you may have a oozing yellow crusting problem on the face that is described here: http://oozingyellowcrusts.com/t/what-does-it-look-like-photos/20 If these photos look similar, than look at the solutions described there.
  2. Reading this topic, I see two different types skin problems: lesions those that ooze liquid painful nodules/lumps So there may be two different kind of problems mixed in this one thread. For those that have the oozing liquid lesion problem, can you confirm whether it look like: http://oozingyellowcrusts.com/t/what-does-it-look-like-photos/20 ? (This is a website dedicated to this unknown facial skin disease, in an effort to combat it by sharing experience and information. It is believed that it is caused by demodex mites, because those that have taken anti-demodex medications, have seen significant improvements.) Suffers of this problem share the following characteristics: often itchy pustules/face pustules that ooze a clear yellow fluid (the primary symptom) it only happens on the face, and possible also the ears sometimes the fluid dries up to yellow crusts, while the pustule below the crusts is continue to ooze and thus produces more crust formation often have this for months or years continuously, with at least one oozing pustule per month, and often on daily basis have seen multiple dermatologists have heard multiple diagnosis have negative bacterial swab test cultures have used multiple topical and oral antibiotics
  3. Do the lesions ooze a clear yellow fluid for about 1 to 1.5 days (depending on the size of the lesion), while yellow crusts are formed continuously by dried up fluid?

    The seborrheic dermatitis thread

    Because you mention "dry up in about 2-3 days", can you confirm whether the symptoms involve pustules that ooze a clear yellow fluid which dries up to yellow crusts? If so, you may have an unknown disease, for which the following dedicated forum has been created: oozingyellowcrusts.com The problem mimics impetigo, but doesn't seem to be impetigo. Suffers have often seen multiple dermatologists, multiple different diagnoses, multiple antibiotics etc, all without success, accept for a few.

    Vitamin B5 Information

    The number of pills doesn't really matter. All what counts is the daily dose. Even using 4 gr per day for a long period, might be a health risk. Some more info about this: http://www.vitaminb5acne.com/vitamin-deficiency.html

    Vitamin B5 Information

    That fact that vitamin b5 is a water soluble vitamin, does not imply that it cannot cause any side effects. Taking large doses of a single vitamin can cause malabsorptions of other nutrients. This is one way of how a megadose of B5 can harm your body when using a megadose on a long term. And yes, some people do not experience any side effects, but that does not imply that they won't experience side effects in the future. It also does not imply that other people won't experience side effects.

    Accutane is usually taken for some period, after which there's a good chance that acne won't return. This is unlike B5, which have to be taken continue in order to be effective. On the long term, this continue usage might have a high risk on the long run. There is no scientific literature available on the subject. However, based on the fact that so few users at much higher dosages have reported anything like a vitamin deficiency, it stands to reason that 1g should not be a high-risk dosage. I think there are enough users that reported vitamin deficiency like problems, that it can not be ignored. They usually took more than 1g, but if 10g causes serious side effects in some individuals, then they should also watch out for 1g. Unfortunately, there aren't much studies about rheumatoid arthritis with a megadose B5. A relative high number of B5 users report hairloss. Whether they usually have a Telogen Effluvium or another hair problem, is unclear. Just as there have been no studies done, there's no scientific evidence of these deficiencies either. There are a lot of studies that do show that a number of nutrients interact with eachother. Vitamin B members are also known to interact. There aren't much studies on B5 specific, but it is generally known that a number of nutrients interact. Depending on the ratio's, this interaction can be positive or negative. To what extent these interactions occur on a certain dose, probably differs from person to person. And which interactions exist for B5 is also not fully known. But because of 1) the fact that a number of nutrients that do interact, which can often lead to deficiencies when unusual ratios are taken 2) the number of reported side effects from B5 users 3) the fact that long term vitamin can lead to chronical diseases; I think that long term B5 users should know that they are walking on an unknown path with possible big risks.

    It's better not to think about "dangerous" or "not dangerous", like it only has only two outcomes. Better is to think about "risk". Beyond a certain level, the higher the dose, the higher the risk of side effects. I think 1g is beyond that certain level, because vitamin B's influenze each other, the long term vitamin deficiency can cause chronical diseases, and 1g is far more than natural. Adding a B50-complex probably decreases the risk of vitamin deficiency, so it is probably recommended to add it. Nobody can say whether you will be safe on the long term with that regimen. Even though some people say you will be safe, they basically make a rough guess.

    Even 1g is a megadose. Based on what scientific literature do you think that a standard multivitamin is enough for 1g B5? If a megadose of B5 somehow triggers an Telogen Effluvium, then it can cause quick and sudden hair loss. Possibilities like this shouldn't simply be ruled out. The long term vitamin deficiency can cause chronical diseases. The long term use of B5 can cause vitamin deficiency in other vitamins, which can cause chronical diseases. Chronical diseases aren't usually quickly reversible. About the short term use of B5? No idea, there aren't much studies done on megadoses of B5.

    That's quick, noticable hairloss within 3-4 days. I would stop immediately, because it might be irreversible. If you really want to do everything about it, I would also suggest to do a blood test. This test should for example measure the levels of: -thyroid hormones (T3, T4, TSH) -Iron -Cortisol -zinc -cbc (There might be other relevant levels to measure which are not listed.) How did you noticed it? Did you saw hair on the pillow or under the shower? Or did you noticed thinner hair when looking in the mirror? And where did you noticed hairloss? On the top of the scalp? Diffuse thinning or on a certain spot?

    If the hair loss is caused by vitamin B deficiency, then a B-complex might help. You can also try to take extra biotin (a vitamin B that is often found in low doses in b-complex supplements). But it's still unknown how hair loss is caused by B5 in some people. There are theories like biotin deficiency, but there's no good evidence. -Are you male or female? -When since the start of B5 did you noticed hairloss? -What dose of B5 have you used? -Did you only take B5, which brand? or also other vitamin supplements?

    Based on what scientific literature, do you believe that taking a megadose of B5 is completely safe?

    I would say coincidence, or part of the initial breakout on that part of the skin.
