Whenever I read about B12 induced acne I see the common "but after you stop injections or supplements the acne will subside" this isn't the case with me.
I was given B12 injections initially through my doctor and then supplied to me through a B12 deficiency "specialist". Within 3 days of starting daily injections myself I developed cystic acne, face, chest neck and back, it came on so rapidly it was bizarre.
I did the daily methylcobalamin injection for 6 months, I experienced no changes in my energy levels or anything else, as this doctor had convinced me I had B12D and needed these injections, I decided to stop them, eagerly waiting for a few weeks to pass and the acne to go away, it just got worse! I wasn't using any harsh chemicals but merely a natural wash so as not to irritate it further.
I had perfect flawless skin up until that point, for 30+ years and then B12 changed it completely. 3 years later, yep you heard me right...I have it calmed down.
I now have very congested skin and if I don't keep up on a regimen which somewhat works the skin starts to erupt again.
I am looking for people like me, that did the injections or took supplements for a few months followed by years of cystic acne. Hopefully someone will have the answer on how to flip the skin back to a flawless canvas instead of a bumpy mess!
