HELP: Can Supplements Cause Breakouts
I recently started to take a lot of supplements and I have had severe breakouts the second of third day into it. Is this a normal thing (because the body is detoxifying itself) or is this not supposed to happen at all. The breakout has lasted and increased in the last 10 days. It is extremely bad now, to the point where it hurts to move my face. It hasn't been this bad ever. I am taking all natural supplements and a lot of them (I mean the most I can take without them getting to toxic levels). I am wondering if anyone has had the same experience or if this is abnormal. For the last three days I have been drinking tons of water and eating crap (healthy) food. I cut off dairy, but I did get some cheese in my sandwich (which was on wheat bread with no mayo). I cut off the oily food and I never drink pop or eat candy. It's so bad I can't go out anymore and I won't even let my family see me that much. These are the supplements I take, I usually take all of them at the same time twice a day (I cut the dose I am listing in half and take it once before lunch and dinner). If there is something wrong or something that you see that might cause this let me know what it is. If you have had the same experience also let me know. Finally, if it is normal for this to happen THEN HOW MUCH LONGER, ITS BEEN 10 DAYS ALREADY!
