    I'm on day 17 of the LL diet. Since day 2 I have had a red, sometomes itchy, patch on the lid of my right eye. It settled down for a week but didn't entirely go away and then returned much worse this week and has spread further across the eye and also to a patch just below my chin.

    I telephoned the LL HO this morning and spoke to a nursre in the medical team. She suggested that I could be allergic to an ingredient in the foodpacks and that I should probably stop the diet for a week to see if it settles again I would know for sure when I restart the diet that it is the foodpacks if the rash returns.

    I feel devastated. I don't want to stop. I've lost 11lbs in 2 weeks and I want to go on. I've never suffered from skin allergies in the past. I just can't understand it.:cry:

    Has anyone else heard of this complication?

    Any way to boost my morale would be more than appreciated.
