Hey, thanks for the thoughts! I've been reading about your rash problem, and I feel so bad, just when you got your skin clear, you had another problem. I agree that after all you've tried, maybe stopping the B5 is a good idea--just to see.
If you start back, why not just go to 6 grams like I've been taking? It works great for me, and I never got up any higher than this (well maybe a few days at first when I didn't keep careful track of just how much I was taking and probably went to 7 or 8 once or twice). For the first time, my skin is actually dry today--and I'm talking 6 hours after I washed it last--dry, and we have l00% humidity today! I can't get over it.
That Oc8 is a great product, isn't it? I've been wearing it on days I'm working long hours and very busy, as that's when the oil increases. It's getting where I'm having more and more days that I can even go without that too.
I really hope you find a solution for your rash and that's it's not the B5. That would just be too tragic.
Are you drinking lots of water? I think that's crucial.
Stay in touch and the best of luck to you. Keep posting daily so I can see how you're doing!
