I started taking probiotcs 90 billion for 5 days, than i had a major acne breakout, i stopped 4 days ago and my face is not better and still am gettin?

Likely unrelated: Probiotics are not like some drug that circulates in your system and might break you out. They are just healthy germ colonies that help digestion. They stay completely within your gut. There is a trivial chance you could be allergic to the capsule material, but it is used for most meds and relatively inert.

You will need to try different shampoos to find which one does not affect your skin. If the problem persists, then see a dermatologist who may perform some patch skin test on you. In the meanwhile , you may use topical Hydrocortisone to clear up the rash. ...Read more

Vitabiotics: I don't think the vitabiotics multivitamins are affecting the face - i'd place my money on it being a coincidence (although you could always just stop the vitabiotics and see). If the otc facial washes aren't helping for the acne, then i suggest talking with your doctor about prescription creams and possibly oral antibiotics. Best of luck. ...Read more
