    Posted: Aug 23 2011 at 10:14pm
I am taking a hair, skin & nails supplement that has 3500mcg of biotin. I take one a day.  I read that biotin can cause acne and my skin has been breaking out I have been taking it for about 2 weeks. Any body experience a biotin breakout? Is there any advice or should i just completely stop taking them? I dont like bumps on my face. Its very annoying almost depressing.

I never had acne until I started taking Biotin. I quit because the benefits were not worth acne scarred skin. It took months for my skin to go back to normal.

When you're taking Biotin, you have to balance your system by taking a B-Complex also. 

To "fix" the breakouts quickly, use either witch hazel or tea tree oil.

increase your water and take a vitamin c (500mg).  that should help.

I had that same problem, I started taking 5000 mcg of biotin and broke out, although to be honest I'm not all that sure it was from the biotin or the stress of breaking up with my boyfriend of 10 years, oooppppss I derailed, I'm back, so um where was I??? Yeah, I took the b-12 the some of the other posters suggested and the pimples didn't go away so what I did was opened up all my biotin capsules and put the powder back in the bottle and now I used my "smidgen" measuring spoon (yeah, that's really what it's called) and I take one of those daily. I'm not sure how much biotin that actually is, but I'm not getting pimples anymore and I still get the benefits of biotin.

@ Dreamjes, interesting, i just broke up with my BF of 9 years,but i aint stressed. I am relieved! bettr things ahead, but cant do pimples. Thank God its going away, school starts tomorrow. I will start taking vitamin C havent taken it in a long time, I do take B complex daily but usually only 1, should i up that?  & i havent been drinking enough water to be honest. I definitely think it was the biotin though. So...i will give  it another shot. Thanks a bunch ladies.

I've never heard of this happening .. I'm taking biotin now and I haven't seen any breakouts .. However I do drink water so maybe that's why I'm not seeing breakouts .
