Hi everyone, so I’m on day 14 and I have an itchy, red rash/hives on my face, upper neck, and randomly on my back. My face is warm to touch. They started on day 2, and I thought it was just my body withdrawling from sugar... now I’m slightly nervous it’s something else. I haven’t been eating anything new and I even made sure I’m using the same shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Has anyone else had this issue, it doesn’t seem to be going away and it’s not only unpleasant looking but also unpleasant feeling. Looking for some advice/help! Thanks!
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!
Hey there! My name is Maura Beaver and I am starting on Monday, July 9th! This will be my first round of Whole30, and this type of program is so new to me. Recently, I have gained a decent bit of weight and I have been having some major allergy issues. I wake up with puffy eyes and lips and I'm breaking out in hives and eczema. We have tried patch testing at the allergist and concluded I'm at least allergic to nickel and gold. I feel like that's not the only issue because I haven't seen much of a change for the better. Now I'm considering the idea it might be food related. Also, let it be known I'm getting married at the end of October and would really like to get this taken care of! If you have any thoughts relating to the allergy topic or just some words of advice about the program, I would love to hear them. I LOVE to cook, so I don't think that will be hard to get used to. I do love cheese and bread - that will be hard to get used to... Thanks in advance, and I hope the program is going well for all of you! Maura
