What Vitamin Tablet Is Right For A Growning 15 Year Old Girl

My five year old girl has no appetite . How do u get her to eat again? Is there any over-the-counter vitamin that can be recommend.
Discuss with PCP: If your kid is growing at a normal rate & participating in peer activities, i'd leave her appetite alone. At 5 they are growing at a steady 3-4 lb/yr & 2-3 inches. They rarely eat a balanced meal but do have a balanced week.They often feed well only 4-5 days a month. If you want to buy vitamins, buy them, but recognize that you're likely just creating expensive urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm a 21yr old girl wondering what vitamins and supplements I should start taking- I prefer not too but it seems like that's a must do?
Not necessarily: If you eat a healthy whole food diet with plenty of veggies, some fruits & nuts, quinoa & plant based proteins/beans & you will feel great.

I have acne and dark circles ...i am 20 years old girl .. I want to use kojic acid from vitamins company USA .. would that be safe ??
I wouldn't: If you use a depigmenting cream (and this stuff isn't a vitamin), you risk disfiguring yourself. It probably won't touch the dark circles. You need to manage your acne like the adult that you now are. You can do it. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, your physician can give you prescription-strength Rx to add. Be mature and discerning. Best wishes. ...Read more
