Advice & Tips: I developed a severe rash or skin condition upon increased dosage of D3 - about 4000IU. I've been off the D3 for almost 3 weeks now and the condition persists. A biopsy has been done, but the only answer or description the dermatologist could give me was "a minor skin inflamation". It may be minor, but it has persisted for 6 1/2 months.

Side effects: skin rash, probable rash
