Can vitamin b complex cause acne? What about fish oil? I wanna take a supplement to make me gain weight but I don't want acne risk if ever? Help?

Supplements and Acne: Hi, neither b complex or fish oil will cause acne. In fact, both of those can actually be beneficial to those suffering from certain types of acne. Having said that, neither of those will lead to weight gain either. Gaining good weight is a result of healthy eating of appropriate nutrients including proteins and "good" fats as well as an appropriate exercise regimen. ...Read more

Vitamin b complex caused me to break out in acne, after taking it for a year, how long will it take for my skin to improve? I've stopped taking it.

There's no telling: Trying to figure out what's causing one to have acne is futile. Ignore all "pop" ideas and start using topical benzoyl peroxide 1-2x daily, perhaps 5%. It's not pleasant but it's your best friend. If it doesn't clear you, your physician can add prescription strength Rx. My acne remitted when I was 50; yours will too, someday. Until then, manage it like the serious medical problem that it is. ...Read more

Hye. I want to ask. Can I take vitamin b complex when im on acne antibiotic for 3 month? . And can I take vitamin C as extra supplement for my skin?

Yes, and also...: No problem taking b complex and vitamin c while on antibiotics. I also strongly advise zinc, vitamin a & vit. E (make sure it is natural with mixed tocopherols), all proven to help acne. I also advise taking probiotics including sacchromyces boulardii to reduce imbalances in flora caused by antibiotics.

Can I take biotin together with vitamin b complex to tame my acne? Can I use benzoyl peroxide aswel? Which one is more effective, cream or gel?

BP is better: Biotin and vitamin b complex are fine but don't expect a miracle when it comes to acne. Benzoyl peroxide will give you better results by far. If your skin is dry, use the cream. If it's oily, use the gel. ...Read more

Maybe: Vitamin b 6 has been associated with decreasing the effectiveness of levodopa-carbidopa. I would recommend having your vitamin levels checked (there is a break down for all b) and see if you need it. Then your physician can better guide you.
