I am 53 years old, I have had a total hysterectomy 3 years ago, I am taking estradiol & prometrium for Hormone Replacement Theraphy. I recently started taking Biotin ( 5mg ) as well because I heard it was good for your nails, skin, and hair. I have never been troubled with oily skin on my face and scalp until just about a month ago, shortly after I started taking the Biotin?? Does anyone know if that could have caused the sudden oil problems on my face, neck & scalp? I also have pimples on my forehead, neck & scalp. If anyone has any ideas about this or has any info. on the Biotin and have found it to cause this problem please let me know. I am having my hormone levels checked tomorrow to see what they are, and to see if there is something going on there. Thanks.
