Iodine - Acne

by Martha
(Baltimore, MD)

Hi, I have been diagnosed with hypothyroid with the beginnings of a goiter.

I cannot eat or take anything with iodine in it as my face breaks out with huge blister type acne.

I have has as many as 53 on my face and it goes all down my back and neck. Eating foods high in iodine, crab meat, asparagus, tomatoes- all cause the same problems- does anyone have any kind of answer or advice for me?


Have you tried a detoxification program? It sound like you are loaded with toxins. This is your body's wake up call to you.

When I first started iodine, my entire head was loaded with pimples and all around the base of my neck. This is the way the body rids itself of the toxins. I kep up the regime and eventually all the pimples disappeared.

Go the the main page of this site and visit the store under Detoxification. I listed several items which can help you.

Let me know what happens.

I wish you the best.

Iodine Allergy - Is it just me?
by: Anonymous

It's not a constant problem- only when I eat foods including veggies high in iodine- for example- asparagus, tomatoes, cabbage, and shell fish.

Can't take vitamins with iodine in them either. Is it an allergy, a reaction?


From what you've told us, it sounds like a true allergic reaction.

I wish you well.

Stay healthy and safe.
