Vitamin B5 Acid Dosage For Treating Acne?
Hello, I have experienced acne for years and quite disturbing my confidence, I searched for treatment solutions on the Internet, from several searches I found a drug called Pantothenic Acid or vitamin B5, and it was explained that to get rid of acne I need to drink as much as 5 grams per day to get rid of pimples, is it not dangerous? I see on the internet that the dose of pantothenic acid for adults is only 5 mg a day? is it okay if increasing the dose by yourself?
Thank you for the question.
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is useful so that the body can make good use of carbohydrates, protein, and fat. In addition, pantothenic acid is also good for maintaining healthy skin, such as relieving irritation, increasing skin cell regeneration, while minimizing inflammation, including inflammation due to acne.
However, please note, that consumption of pantothenic acid alone does not necessarily cure acne. Because, acne is a multifactorial condition. So, the cause is not only related to vitamin B5 deficiency, but also due to hormonal fluctuations, stress, irritation or allergies due to inappropriate use of skin care products, bacterial infections, unhealthy eating patterns, lack of sleep, drug side effects, genetics, and many again other possible causes. So, handling acne should be done comprehensively.
Consumption of pantothenic acid supplements should not be done haphazardly, especially if done long term. Because, the vitamin needs of each person can certainly be different. This should be determined directly by a doctor's examination. Excessive consumption of this supplement risks causing you to experience indigestion, such as diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, bloating, constipation, and so on. Safer, if you want to get enough pantothenic acid intake, you multiply the consumption of natural ingredients, such as meat, vegetables, fortified cereals, eggs, and milk. For acne to heal faster, in addition to making sure you consume enough pantothenic acid from your diet, you need to do this too:
Be diligent in bathing and washing your face with soap that suits your skin type
Not forcibly squeeze or slough off pimples and scars
Use a moisturizer and sunblock before activating
Don't overdo using cosmetics
Do not hold skin with dirty hands
Control your stress well
Do not sleep too late
Expand to eat fruit, vegetables, drink water
Don't overeat foods that are fatty, oily, bersantan, and contain high cholesterol
If the pimples do not improve for a long time, try to see yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist to be given the appropriate treatment huh ..
I hope this helps.
