Multi-vitamin Without Vitamin C

Posted by Sandy (Dallas, TX) on 09/17/2006

My daughter who is 34 years of age cannot take Vitamin C. She breaks out in a rash all over her body. Is there a multi vitamin she can take without C?

Sandy: Not sure if your daughter is allergic to vitamin C. If she does not break out in rash eating oranges then it may be from the food coloring contained in the vitamin C you are buying. Switching brands to additive free vitamin C or ones without food coloring should solve the problem. It could also be the food preservative. One possibility is if she is sulfite sensitive (easy to get allergy), taking vitamin B complex should solve the rash issues
