Multivitamins: If you have not done so, please take a preparation of multivitamins that has all of the B vitamins in it, for about three months. If you have already tried that, then it is time to see a dermatologist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
