Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with Pernicious Anaemia just over 6 months ago. I had my loading dose over 2 weeks (6 injections) and had another 2 every 3 months.
I think I had the typical reaction: a really bad acne breakout lasting a good 1 or 2 months and a rash over my chest. The acne is reduced but is still there and my chest rash is more present than not.
I also had one very bad bout of impetigo after waxing my legs! And now I just get a small impetigo blister that goes away quickly after a wax (always the same leg).
After my 1st monthly injection, I started to get eye problems. I think I might have blepharitis now, but it's hard to tell. I can get by but I have very, very dry eyelids (sore to stretch when rubbing) and dry in the mornings (no eye goop). When wearing any form of makeup or moisturizer I get puffy eyelids with some occasional swelling... I don't get the crustiness that tends to come with blepharitis. I only have small little skin-coloured lumps on my eyelids and waterline. I heard this could be due to bacterial infection.
So with sudden acne, impetigo and possibly an eye infection, I can only imagine the increase of B12 has triggered something inflammatory and a bacterial imbalance.
Has anyone else had these kinds of problems? I can't find anything information other than acne breakouts.
