I started my son (13 years old) on pantothenic acid (B5) on Sept. 27. He had acne (not cysts) pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and was obnoxiously oily!! It was getting out of control and I could see daily how it was just running away. He had been to the derm in July and was put on a cleansing routine and minocin. After starting the B5 on the 27 in only 3-4 days it was amazing the difference in his skin. Immediatly the oiliness was reduced. And each day his skin looked better as the breakouts began to get under control. Now, November 3 I looked at his skin this morning on the way to school and it looks soooooooo good. It wasn't oily, he had no active pimples at all or big blackheads that use to cover his nose. He does have red spots from the previous blemishes but they are going away. Thank you B5 and the people on this message board (and another one) that put me on to this. He has take 6g of B5 for a little over a month. Thank you, thank you. This has been an answer to prayers! I haven't posted about the progess before because I didn't want to speak it then it stop!! Superstitious, I guess. I just want everyone to know that so far we are happy B5 users!!!
