  1. I would imagine it is an IB, but I would also imagine that it shouldn't last too long. So maybe give it another week or so, and if no sign of improvements have a rethink.
  2. I don't think you would notice the effects at lower dose. You could try something like Pantethine without so much megadose, but I don't have any personal experience of that to recommend it. Another option I wonder about could be to take medium amount of B5 and Vit A (safe amounts), to see if somehow there's a good combination.
  3. Hi, I'm in the UK and exactly the same. I just fry where I get oily. My eyes and generally sensitivity is also hard going in the light and heat. Sometimes I've just put it down to working indoors a lot, and if I spent more time outdoors I would get used to it. But there does feel like something related to the oil. I also am dark haired and tan easily.
  4. Tried it, it SUCKS!!! Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance, but as I upped my dosage, I broke out WORSE! Not to mention, I felt like absolute S-H-I-T!!! I then tried Caprylic Acid, according to an Anti-Candida site, guess what, that SUCKED as well! These two supplements were definitely NOT of any use! You will break out from it initially. Thats it probably starting to work. This is an unfortunate side effect of quite a few methods of treatment, especially internal ones. If you feel
  5. But you could actually see results? Yes, all the sebum/oil on my nose especially stopped, and cystic acne stopped. I would definitely go back to it if I need some short term results again. I had diarrhea after about 3 days in, but went a few days later. It did make me more sweaty as well when exercising. wow that's great! wat was ur daily dosage and when and how did you take it? 10g a day, spread in chunks of 4 or 5 500g pills. The problem is the sheer quantity taken of tablets, i
  6. Try it and see. It worked for me. You will know in about 7 days if its working or not (assuming taking 10g or more). Its not a cure, and its not imo a long term solution. However, it is effective short term. Not sure why the comment on the fraudulent study. None of it has been disproved either, which would be simple to do. There's just no money in studies on vitamins.

  8. Worked well for me short term. It was simply the volume of tablets needed to keep it going that in the end made me seek alternatives.
  9. It won't pass, because it works, you can tell by the sebum reduction. Effectively its been tried and tested for years. Its just a case of safety level amounts of it. People will always be taking it, but hopefully some better system may come up so its not needed, but I can't see that yet. Personally I'd try and go the way of having at least 10,000 a day and see how it goes. Or may be more at first but then try and taper off to that. I'd also be interested in anyone who tool a low dose of Vi
  10. What do you do for your body building out of interest ? I haven't seen much mention of that. Do you ever take any supplements at all, and low long have you been working out ?
  11. I've actively been doing this for a couple of months. My skin has never been better since the last 25 years, however I'm also doing some other improvements at the same time (same cals, but reducing carbs except veg, but I'm not strict), so it would be hard to say its just the sweet potato, but it feels like it helps. I have a sweet potato anywhere I would have a normal potato, so I bake them, steam them, or steam then chuck into a stir fry. Absolutely yum. Even if I didn't care about acne, I w
  12. Vit A certainly can be harmful, just don't take it for long, try to reduce over time imo. Do some research on levels for Vit A, so you can make an informed decision.
  13. Don't underestimate the impact of food on acne, it has a huge affect over time especially. As mentioned, to help get clear, cut out sugars/dairy/wheat/processed food. It won't clear overnight, but its the only way imo of keeping acne at bay. You can do this whilst trying short term measures like megadosing, accutane etc, then you can slowly come off them once there is a good acne opposing diet.
  14. B5 megadosing could be one option. I wouldn't normally recommend it, as its not trivial and not a long term solution imo, but it can clear up cystic acne short term. Do please do some research on it first though. You could possibly try it for a few weeks soonish to see if it has any impact (there may be an initial breakout, but once past that, you definitely don't want to hit that at your wedding, so good to know what you would be experiencing). I don't consider it a healthy option as there's q
  15. Biotin is normally the one causing cystic acne. However there's not so much in there. Iirc it has been tested that B6 and B12 can cause acne as well, and those are in pretty high amounts I guess. Personally I wouldn't take high amounts of any of the B vitamins with the exception of B5/Pantothenic acid.
