Anyone had good results with this?

I have cystic acne, and ive been taking 8g's of twin labs b5 for a couple of weeks now, and my face has broken out with quite a few new cysts in diff spots than usual. I have heard that b5 is not recommended for cystic type acne, but i think my cystic acne is due to over oil production. Well i still have not noticed a decrease in oil over these last few weeks. Anyone else use b5 with cystic acne and it help at all? I just ordered a 200 and 100 count bottle, so i guess im going to go thru all these i bought or stop if my face keeps breaking out with no sign of quitting, then ill stop it. Im hoping im just getting another initial type breakout since i upped from 4g's to 8g's a day. I also am taking a b-complex and biotin, my hair is staying pretty intact so thats good. :P

Anyways, thanks.
I had cystic acne on my back. My face was continuously oily with persistant moderate acne. Every day was something new. A new spot to deal with...
I did the B5 thing, going right for the 10 G a day thing. I broke out on my back in about two weeks. The initial breakout; almost all on my back. Horrible looking, and I had my doubts about B5 right there. I stuck with it.
Then after 3 months (I went down to about 8 Grams a day) my face suddenly cleared.
My back took more than 6 months to clear.
Then I became cocky and started eating whatever I wanted (I wouldn't recomend it) Also I have a strange job with strange hours, un-even sleep paterns... Coffee addiction, horrible diet...
I recently did a colon clense/anti-parasite; And will eventually do a liver clense. I stopped B5 and all other vitamins during that 3 week long proscess. I got a horrible skin rash, my left side of my forehead broke out permenetly; and I now have some strange freakish lumps under my skin on my face/neck that seem to be spreading, but not going away. Not acne, but something that I think I may actually have to go to a doctor for because they are freaking me out. Like someone shoved small peas deep under my skin. I have no idea what the hell happened, but I wish I hadn't stoped B5. Perhaps I need to do a liver clense too.
During the colon cleanse, I ate healthier than I have ever done before in my life. I bought a quality fiber supplement that tasted like crap, and cut out anything "unhealthy" from my diet. My skin looks horrible.

GoodGuy, Stick with the B5. You may want to look into making a B5 cream and add Niacimide to it. I found some pure aloe juice, it looks like water. I mixed the Niacimide, B5, and aloe juice, then added some cocoa butter till you get the right gel consistancy.
If you don't like the homade approach you could try the Acne Miricle website B5 cream. I have not tried it, and I don't think anyone here has either.
Yeah, thats the site I always use. Actually it's cheaper on that site to order two 100 count bottles, than one 200 count bottles. Strange.
That site also had the cheapest price for Pantethine i've found.

Cystic acne is also what most people complain about after starting B5. The initial breakout is almost always in the form of cystic ance. And that is what scares people about B5 at first.
I hope you see good results soon.
Good deal, i hope these cysts are from the initial. I would have to think it was from the initial or just my body not liking b5. Becase im getting a lot of cysts in places i don't get cysts. And with my cystic acne, they usually re-occur in same spots only..which are quite a few. And for some reason, there is this spot on my chin that most of my breakouts go to. So your saying, people get cysts and then quit because they never had them before. So cystic acne is sort of common as an initial breakout? Memnoch?

Thanks, also i was telling u how proactive was working good for me. Well it stopped working..lol. So ive switched to cetaphil, i was reading how its non-alkaline and yada yada. So this is probably a lot better for my sensitive type skin. You think i should still add some sort of bp/sa to my regime? Via lotion, or others? I know you can't really say because you don't see my face, but im just wondering on the bacteria killing i need.

Cetaphil being non-alkeline which is opposite of what bacteria live in, so would using cetaphil along with some sort of killer, give me double the effect? :P

Thanks for any reply, and thanks again memnoch for you pimpage on b5.

Im also running out of my b-complex, wondering if i should order gel caps instead of composite pill b-complex. Thanks.. :wave:
I jst went back to the gnc brand b5 I don't know why I ever stopped. Memnock said Pantethine would work better and faster so thats why I stopped b5 and tried that but now after a horrible breakout from pantethine the oil is still there and nothing's changed. when I went on b5 i saw a change in like the 1st 3 or 4 days and I didnt get any initial breakout. so i hope it will still work.
