Has anyone else broke out from taking Biotin?

Yes but it cleared up after a while for me.

On my EVO
I don't know about biotin, but B vitamins cause me to break out in GIANT bumps. They can be as big as a sharpie giant marker in diameter to tiny pin head size. But when I can finally pop them (nasty, I know. Sorry.) they leave dark black spots. Weirdest thing I ever saw. So a biotin "reaction" isn't too far fetched.

You are suppost to start with the lowest dose and work your way up and yes lots of water.

So far I have not broken out from taking Biotin because I take a low dose. I can't really tell if it's working on my hair but my eyelashes look marvelous. 

How much water? I drink about 32oz daily w/ 2300mcg biotin.
About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
What's considered a low dose?

I take 3,000 mcg of biotin daily. At one point I did have a small break out, nothing too awful. Make sure to drink lots of water or lower your dosage.
Omg! No wonder im breaking out. Ive been taking 5000 mg a day. Smh.
