DoxyDummy: i have been using B5 for over a year now. About three months ago I went down to 500mg a day just to see what would happen. Naturally my oil production went up and my acne did come back. And so i went back to taking 4 grams a day. I'm clear now. I eat a lot more junk food than I should, drink more coffee than I should, and work in a stressfull inviornment. I would say that B5 is a miricle.

It's important to understand that B5 is not meant to be a cure. People do call it a cure (I sometimes use that word too) however it is a treatment. Most people will outgrow acne, B5 will work for most people until they no longer need it.

I noticed that your name is Doxy dummy. I assume that means you are on the antibiotic Doxycycline. Or were at one point. How did that work for you? For how long? Antibiotics usually start off great. But most will work for a maximum of a year.
I have personally tried Amoxacilin, Augmentin, Clindamycin (oral and topical) Minocycline, and Azithromycin. Want to know something? Azithromycin (zithromax) was the only one that worked for me. For about a month.

Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Grapefruit seed extract, Tee tree oil, Herbs like Yellowdock/Burdock/Red Clover/ext, Zinc, Nature's Cure, Hydrocortizone, Resorcinol/sulfer, Glycolic acid, Niacimide gel, Flax Oil, Ayurevedic herbs, pro biotics.... I have used all of these. And I have given them all a fair chance I think. Some did help. But most only helped After I got the pimple. They didn't do much offense, just defense. I was always playing damage control.
B5 changed that. It took over 3 months due to my life style, but it did make my life less about Dealing with acne, to just forgetting about it. I wash my face with Burt's Bee's soap in the morning, at night I put on a Niacinamide/Pantothenic acid gel at night. Thats it.
Some day soon I think I will get off of B5 all together. Hopefully. Maybe soon. Good luck to you in whatever you choose. We are all diferent.
