I am currently taking 5.5 grams a day. My skin is not oily at all at this dose (I could still have some accutane in my system, I finished my course in November).

I've found that increasing the dose makes me breakout on areas of my face that were previously clear (above and below my mouth, below my jaw).

Also if I decrease the dose it make my skin a little oily again and new spots forms due to this. My main problem area is my cheeks and jaw line, and an occasional small spot on my forehead. My acne type is whiteheads, I've never had a blackhead, but they form very deep under the skin and come up like inflammed bumps which may take a day or two to form a top, and sometimes don't even form a head at all.

I don't have a huge amount on my face at one time (maybe 3/4), but due to B5 drying my skin, the marks old spots leave last for weeks, and make my skin look worse than it is. If I could find a way to stop my skin breaking out, then the marks would heal in time, and my skin would look fine.

It seems my acne is not caused by excessive oiliness, - I just seem to have lots of nasty resistant skin bacteria that refuses to budge. I'll continue to take B5 as it stops my skin from being oily, but I think I need an alternative stategy to get rid of my acne which I why I'm trying the diet Aquarius posted. If that doesn't work than I'm about out of options.

I was interested to read the post about the guy who said his acne was caused by anxiety and the body thinking something was wrong when it wasn't. I think that could be my problem,
