I get sick quite often. I read that you should take 3000mg of Vit C if you feel the start of an infection. Only problem is that I get a skin rash on my chest everytime I take Vit C. I have taken Scorbex and another type I used in the UK. What now?
You're on the right track using Vitamin C the moment you feel an infection coming but maybe you're using the wrong type of Vitamin C.
I would suggest you try buffered Vitamin C in the form of Calcium Ascorbate which has a much milder effect on your body whilst still being bad news for viruses.
Your dosage is also very low believe it or not!
I've used Vitamin C in dosages of 5000mg, four times a day, on myself and many of my patients with great success and without any adverse effect.
NOTE: Some people do show allergic reactions to some supplements, Vitamin C included. Thus I would suggest you try small amounts of the Calcium Ascorbate and gradually increase the dosage until you feel comfortable to take the full dosage
