I know some of you have said that biotin makes you break out. I've been using it for less than a month now, I'm taking 1200mcgs/day.

I've noticed that my skin isn't breaking out at all, but I'm getting small pimples on my scalp, around my hairline. I was just wondering if any of you guys experienced this as well.

I haven't changed anything else except that I started taking biotin, that's why I figured the breakouts must be due to it.

Are you drinking lots of water with it?  Sorry to hear about your experience.  I think that you are supposed to take Vitamin C with it to counter the effects of the breakouts or is that MSM?

Thanks Talia. I am drinking a lot of water, I usually drink 2-3 liters a day anyway. I just thought it was odd because I'm not breaking out anywhere else! I did read about vitamin c and zinc as well helping to counteract the effects. I forgot about that though! I'll have a look at the shop later :)

The moment I started taking Vitamin C with my biotin, the breakouts stopped.

I've never experienced this, but I do agree with Talia and SMS from what I've heard about other ladies experiences with Biotin.

I've been taking about 3000mcg of Biotin everyday and I haven't experienced any break-outs. But I AM taking it thru a Hair, Skin, and Nails formula so it also has 120mg of Vitamin C, and 7.5mg of zinc so maybe that could be why....

trublue, I don't pull on my hair. It's cut quite short (between shoulder and neck) so I usually wear it down, unless it's a formal occasion)

Sweetyangel are yours the weird kind like mine? They aren't like proper zits that I can pop, their like bumps under the skin and they can get a bit sore. I might try salicylic acid on them. Now that I think about it though, I just recently had a few of them on my thigh (which is really strange) but I used salicylic acid on them and they were gone by the next day. that stuff is awesome! :)

I'm going to finish this bottle (I've got a few more days left) and then get the gnc one cuz I think that's got zinc and vitamins in it as well and it has 3000 mcgs/tablet. The ones I'm taking are 300/tablet so I have to take four of them.
