I posted a topic about 8 or 9 days ago about some tiny itchy red bumps that had formed on and around the perimeter of my mouth. I went to a pharmacist who directed me to some hydrocortisone cream. She thought it was contact dermatitis, perhaps from a moisturizer or a cosmetic. The cream seemed to be working, but now the bumps are back and the itch has extended to other places as well (behind my ears, backs of my hands, sometimes my cheeks and the side rib area halfway between my waist and armpits). The other areas don’t have the bumps. They’re just itchy. I’m fearing that this is an allergic reaction to something I’m eating, but it’s odd that there’s no irritation or itch inside my mouth. I read on a website link provided in the Newbie sticky post in New To Raw that allergies from earlier in life and rashes can pop up during the detox phase.
Has anyone experienced anything like I’m describing and was it an allergy to a food or something you put on your skin, or was it a symptom of detox? For the record, the bumps around my mouth are neither acne nor cold sores. They’re the size of tiny goose bumps. I normally have exceptionally clear skin. I only get a few zits per year. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
