Hi all - I’m on day 12 of my first Whole 30. On day 6 I woke up and my mouth felt completely burnt over and I started to develop cold sores. I hadn’t eating anything hot the day before so after googling it a bit I got the sense it was thrush. On day 8, I woke up with some small hives on my right arm. I went to an urgent care yesterday as they had gotten worse and my pcp today as they were completely covering my body when I woke up this am (face, neck, stomach, arms, legs - literally everywhere!). My pcp diagnosed it as “idiopathic urticaria” aka hives for no distinguishable reason and oral thrush. Nonetheless, he is sending me to an allergist on Tuesday to get it checked out. In terms of food, everything I’m eating I’ve eaten before, though definitely more quantities since starting. I had coconut water on day 5, coconut milk on day 7 and coconut water again on day 9. So I stopped that in case it was related, and stopped all nuts since day 9. Even still, the hives got worse and spread more.
i have read about how it could be my body detoxing etc but I’m really just wondering - has anyone experienced anything like this!?! I never had thrush before and I’m not prone to hives whatsoever. Kind of feel like my body is rejecting being healthy! Lol - powering through though. Appreciate any info on similar experiences!
