I've been taking haiirfinity for at lease 4 months but never had an itching problem until I started taking biotin about a month now but I reduced my hairfinity to 1 a day and I started taking MSM 1000 mg about 2 weeks now but I used to take the aMSM before and I never itch but I really think it's the biotin. I started drinking more water and it helps some but still itching. So what should I do, I'm trying to take the biotin for at lease 2 months , then I'm gonna stop for awhile
