Itching!!


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm on day 2 of my first Whole30.  Today has been ITCHY!!  Arms, hands, ear canals, mouth, nose, and now I am getting little itchy blisters on my lips that are increasing in number with each meal.  They aren't canker sores or cold sores, but more like the reaction I've had from mango skin and pineapple.  Nothing I've eaten is unusual or non compliant.  I'm 46, and have a history of several autoimmune issues - asthma, allergies, endometriosis, alopecia.  Anyone else have this reaction?  I wasn't expecting so much discomfort so early in the program.

Bananas maybe?  Or celery?  So far today has been better (or at least not worse) in terms of itching.  I didn't exactly jump into my Whole 30 all at once.  I'd been a vegetarian then pescatarian for over 17 years, so about a month ago I started easing back into an omnivorous diet in preparation.  I didn't cut out anything completely but did greatly reduce my grains, legumes, dairy, sugar, and alcohol for several weeks before Day 1.   I'm hoping it's just a resurgence of symptoms that will fade away in then next few days.
