I'm getting ready to up my dosage to 4000 mcgs as soon as I need a new bottle.
I think my rash started with my watch band scratching my arm. I don't know why the area around it got so itchy. It's totally weird. The timeline as best I can remember is sometime last fall or winter I ran out of Biotin and neglected to replace it. Silly on my part since Biotin is relatively inexpensive. I started taking it again sometime in the early spring. I think my rash started about 6-7 weeks ago so that would be about mid May. I'm sure I had been taking the biotin again for a couple of months by mid May. The rash is fairly localized and hasn't spread. When I've had a reaction to a bug bite, I had a rash and red welts all over and I do mean ALL OVER So I supposed it certainly could be possible. I think my expensive ointment is starting to work. I'm giving it until the end of this coming week and then I'll call the dermatologist. I'm just wierd
