    Thumbs down Multivitamin with Potassium Iodide=Bad?

    Well I have finally come to the conclusion that my Multivitamin was causing me to break out in those nasty sore,large bumps that would live under the skin and take about a week or more to go away. Since I have stopped taking my multivitamin I have been the clearest I have ever been in my life. So I checked the ingrediants to see if it contained Iodine because I've read on here that that can be bad for acne but it doesn't...the closest thing to Iodine is Potassium Iodide can that do the same harm or is it another ingrediant.

    Anyway I still would like to take a multi because with such a busy lifestyle my diet is very poor( I just had chocolate cake for breakfast )
    So If anyone knows of a good multi that won't break you out and that is available in Australia please let me know I would really appreciate it.
