iron pill causing breakout/acne?

Is it possible that the chelated iron pills I am taking is making my skin break out?

I have tried 2 brands (one was free), both have
ferrous bisglycinate
folic acid
vitamin B-12

I will just go back to regular ferrous sulfate if it is ....

ajpa--I say whatever works well for you do that. Ferris Sulfate is so harsh and you really need to be careful with it IMHO. Best of luck to you. FLFLOWERGIRl
