Does taking biotin vitamin for hair and nails break you out?

No: However, if you have a rash for more than 2 week or you're systemically sick or the rash is obviously dangerous-looking, get seen. And be sure you know what you're really taking -- somebody who'd recommend "biotin for hair and nails" may actually be selling you goodness-knows-what. ...Read more

On hair, skin and nails vitamins with 3000 mcg of biotin for at least 4 years now.@1daily for 2 months and then a break. Can I go up to 5000 mcgbiotin?

On hair, skin and nails vitamins with 3000 mcg of biotin for at least 4 years now.@1daily for 2 months and then a break. Can I go up to 5000 mcgbiotin?

Yes, totally safe: Biotin is extremely safe, in fact there is absolutely no known toxicity from any amount of biotin. 5000 mcg may sound like a lot, but it's the same as 5 mg, which may not sound like much.
Whether it helps you is another question; it will help if you are deficient but deficiency is uncommon. Advise continuing the Skin, Hair and Nails vitamin too.

What causes hair to falling out? Take vitamins and Biotin but have weak nails and falling out hair: (

May be hypothyroid: Hypothyrooidism is a common condition that often causes hair loss (hyperthyroidism may cause too but less commonly). Unfortunately many docs don't diagnose it properly, thinking someone is normal unless their TSH is 4.5 or higher when most who are hypothyroid have "normal" TSH's. A holistic/integrative doc will do more exhaustive tests.

Biotin: Hi, Biotin is a cofactor for Vitamin B group and is water soluble and it excess can be excreted from body by kidney so I don't think it could cause any problem and toxicity, I don't think Biotin has side effects if the kidney is working fine, although I saw the other day a colleague said it could cause skin breakout so I did a search and I couldn;t find any scientific evidence. ...Read more

I started taking fish oil, biotin for skin/hair&nails, a women's daily vitamin, and birth control pills and now I'm breaking outreally bad. Why? Is this forever?

I started taking fish oil, biotin for skin/hair&nails, a women's daily vitamin, and birth control pills and now I'm breaking outreally bad. Why? Is this forever?

The pill or oil: Either the fish oil or the pill could be contributing to your break outs. The pill changes your natural hormone balance so that you may become more testosterone dominant. And some people react to omegas plus hormones by breaking out.
I would not stop the omegas altogether but try changing your dose. Or adding lecithin to help your body absorb it. ...Read more

Would hair skin and nails vitamins be more beneficial than biotin pills? (heard online that biotin pills cause hair growth in areas such as legs, arms

Now, think about it: You want something to help hair/nails/skin but you are worried that it will cause hair growth where you don't want it. Certainly no supplements will preferentially aid growth in only specific areas! There is some evidence that biotin does improve keratin infrastructure important in healthy hair/nails. But not clear any better than the right amount of other B vitamins best obtained in healthy diet ...Read more

I use biotin vitamin 5mg & I take one a day. I use it for having heathly hair & growth. How long will I start seeing difference?

Won't help unless...: Hard to say- maybe never! Biotin deficiency can cause hair problems but if you are not deficient it may not help you. Many vitamins are needed for healthy hair, including b3, b5, b6, B12 ; a, c, d ; e. Zinc ; silica are also important, as are omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. And vitamins are never a substitute for a healthy diet.

If you have hair: Issues, and at 48 years young, you may be approaching menopause with hormones in flux. Multivitamins are usually good enough for your hair, though there are preparations out there that will promote more hair growth.
