Can I use oral vitamin a/b5/zinc to reduce acne? I know vitamin a can be toxic in large doses, but Accutane sounds equally toxic at therapeutic doses.
Worth a try: It's non-toxic though the doses recommended for acne will involve a lot of pills and nobody's done a real study and there are anecdotes of people getting sick from. Being 13 is hard enough without disfiguring acne, and junior has a right to effective treatment. I begin most folks with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative, moving to stronger stuff as appropriate. Good luck. ...Read more

Serious Rx: Forget vitamins and eat sensibly, but diet's not the key. Try topical benzoyl peroxide as you can tolerate, and if you're not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength treatment. Acne can be managed until it self-cures with time. Best wishes. ...Read more
Please advise vitamins that will help hormonal acne, tried oral and topical treatments. Want to go natural route please as problems with others. ?
Re-evaluate: The skin reflects health of liver. If hormonal acne take good care of liver by taking good care over all. Eat 6 equal small healthy meals with mostly fresh vegetables and berries, a low glycemic grain like quinoa, and low fat protein like small cooked beans. Lower stress. Vitamin c 500 mg in water to make a paste topically can be helpful. Magnesium may be better than calcium. Epo can help. ...Read more

I was taking a acne treatment. I had been prescribed lot of pills (isotroin-20), serums (vc-15). My skin goes dark in sun if I do not cover my face.
What's your question: You're on Isotretinoin which is the strongest acne medication and will prevent further scarring. The vitamin topical application probably won't hurt. You'll do well to use a heavy sunscreen especially while you're on isotretinoin. Please do not try to bleach your skin with hydroquinone; you'll end up disfiguring yourself. Don't worry about your skin being dark; it's fine. ...Read more
Rx's best: Since you are a female, your physician may be able to identify a mild hormonal problem putting you at extra risk. Over-the-counter stuff is weak. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative, adding a systemic antibiotic if needed (erythromycin might be a good choice if you can tolerate it). Only dermatologists can use the strongest medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
