Well, I feel a little silly asking this but I need some reassurance that this is really die off. My dh is quite concerned that this is not die off but some sort of horrible allergic reaction and that I should consider quitting the supplements.
So here is the what has happened. Around the first of Oct I upped my probiotic dosage and got stricter with my sugar and carb consumption. I am still not totally free of either but pretty close and once I go shopping I should be able to do better. Anyways,as I increased the probiotics I started getting a rash on the back of my ears and on my back. I ran out of probiotics for 2 days while waiting for my beeyoutiful order and my rash got worse. I then started taking Acidophilus Blast & Enzyme Digestive and my rash which I now know is eczema continued to spread. I added aloe vera juice and some pumpkin seeds. I am trying to drink lots of water but my eczema keeps getting worse. My face is covered - swollen, red, itchy, etc.... my back, my scalp, my neck, my chest, the backs of my knees, & my arms are covered with the eczema much of which is open sores (from the scratching
) the rest of my body just has random patches. I also have a yeast skin infection in my armpits that just keeps getting worse. I am trying coconut oil on that. This is very discouraging. It is has been 18 days since the eczema started and just continues to get worse. I have been under quite a bit of stress as well, is that why its worse and not better? Am I totally off base thinking this die off? I don't feel like I can go out in public shopping or anything because the eczema on my face is soooo bad. I have tried to perservere but am definately losing everything needed to do that.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.... I am at the end of my ropes.
