Ive been reading some comments on this forum about B12 (pernicious aneamia) and the flare ups of acne.
I had my loading dose in March and skin was ok, but after the first 3monthly injection in June, my skin has goe downhill, and after the October one, its a mess. Unlike some people on the forum, my skin has not got better or settled down, infact it seems to have got worse. Ive never had a spot in my life, and now at the age of 46 , I look like a pepperoni pizza!! Its so distressing.
Ive read about the porphyins/ acne etc and ive also kept a rigourous cleansing regime, but my next step will be IPL or laser treatment. Topical treatments are always a must but someone has advised me to try a natural bactria culture ( found in some better brands of yoghurt etc), as this aids the gastric and digestive processes.
Its so complicated this pernicious aneamia - Ive been told the injections are a MUST if I want to remain healthy..but I dont want to be spotty!!
If anyone has any other help tips, please share.
