I’ve also heard biotin works, but from what I understand you need your entire nail to grow out and be replaced before you see benefits (3-6 months). it’s not a fast solution. also, I’d caution against taking too much. some people take 5000 mcg (5mg) and then complain of getting acne. that is an insane amount.
I’ve been taking 1000 mcg for about 4 months now. no acne so far. I think I can finally see results! my “problem” nail seems to have finally stopped breaking, but I’ve only noticed this for a couple of weeks. too soon to tell.
