I just finished my second Whole30 on Tuesday. Last time I did the Whole30 I did not properly follow a reintroduction plan, so this time I'm following the one in the book to a T. The first thing I have reintroduced is legumes. I had peanut butter with my breakfast, hummus with my lunch and black beans with dinner. The next morning I woke up with skin irritation around my mouth, I was itchy and red all day and it has continued to this morning (the second day after I reintroduced the legumes). Since it's not gone today I'm wondering if maybe it could be more because of the external environment (spring allergies). Has anyone else had this reaction? Also I'm wondering if this was caused by all the different types of legumes I ate or if just one is doing it. THANK YOU!
I've been going over the forums this week and couldn't find anything similar and wasn't sure where to post my issues(s), so I hope this is appropriate here. I'm on day 30, but would like to go over what began day 28. I'm baffled by this as I've not had an allergic reaction (if that's what this is) or condition like this in my life. Day 28 I woke up with tiny bumps all over my face that felt like snake skin, but oily. It was not noticeable, but you could feel it. Day 29 I woke up and it had spread to my neck, ears and into my scalp behind my ears with a bit of an itchy feeling-still unnnoticeable until you touched my skin. Day 30 (today) I woke up and it's red, very itchy and noticeable on my face, ears, neck and some of my scalp. Nothing in my diet changed, I haven't added anything new to my daily routine. I'm applying Benadryl lotion to hopefully help. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. The worst I had was mosquito bites that swell-and it wouldn't be every time-quite large in the last 3 years. I haven't been out much to test what happens yet since doing Whole30. I started to see an improvement in my skin tone day 23 and started feeling pretty good overall. With this rash, allergic reaction, eczema, whatever it is, my eyelids and face seem puffy/bloated. I first passed it off as part of my seasonal allergies (which I only started suffering from 3 years ago as well and was part of why I decided to try Whole30). That is one area Whole30 has not seemed to help. It's been the worst year for my allergies and over half the Whole30 30 days were negatively impacted by those symptoms. Anyone else experience this or have an idea what it could be? I don't know if the Benadryl treatment is helping since I just started today. I'm hopeful that it will aid and rid of whatever this is. I would really like any suggestions what could be causing this so I can avoid it in the future. Also, I get the impression I should stick with Whole30 100% a bit longer to perhaps see more results with my skin and allergies since the benefits have been a bit delayed or small. Would you agree?
