Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin, also called vitamin B₇ and formerly known as vitamin H or coenzyme R.

Biotin is used for preventing and treating biotin deficiency associated with pregnancy, long-term tube feeding, malnutrition, and rapid weight loss. It is also used orally for hair loss, brittle nails, skin rash in infants (seborrheic dermatitis), diabetes, and mild depression.
