Legs Miserable: How to Eliminate the Itch from Your Rash

by Alicia

I have just gotten mostly over a horrible allergic reaction to Almond Milk. I am allergic to seaweed and I had no idea what carageenun in the milk was.

My legs and arms broke out into a rash more like bad poison ivy than just a rash. The itch kept me awake all night.

Then I went to Google and started looking for the needle in the haystack. Thank goodnes I found it. (cold skim milk applied can take away the itch on many rashes and saved my sanity).

As things were clearing up nicely, I tried my daughter's Metamucil today. Now the rash is inflamed and itching again. The side effects listed say to call a doctor immediately if you get a rash etc.

Well, at 1am all I can do is apply milk, go to bed and assume I will wake up tomorrow.

My point was the Carrageenan which caused the rash. It's use is to smooth stuff out like ice cream and a million food products. Probably no one but me cares, as they aren't allergic to it.I'm not sure how I got here and it wasn't about my colon, but the Almond milk was my daughter's and she was on a doctor's cleansing program using it. I started looking up chemical additives and was delighted to find sodium stearoyl lactylate, which we eat in almost everything daily , must be handled wearing goggles etc (this was on their web site) and is also used to de-ice the wings on planes. You should read their short message which is more of a SSL manual and the interesting part was the few lines on human ingestion, mentioning it's part in food was as an emulsifier of low level toxicity. I wish everyone a successful colon cleanse and I hope you aren't allergic and have a rash to almost everything....then have to find the devil causing it. Doctors aren't much help.

I recommend the DrFloras colon cleanser if you want to cleanse your colon safely, effectively, and without spending a fortune.
