Hi everyone,

I recently developed an itchy rash across my collarbones and back. I think it might be the water flavourings causing it because it's the only thing I have had consistently when this rash occurred and also I used more of it recently. Has anyone else experienced this at all? I read up on the net that aspartame can cause rashes and this is in the flavourings.

Thanks xxx

Ain't that strange. Only today Susan was telling me about her allergic reaction to the flavourings, now two people have noticed it. Good idea to start a thread so others can be aware of this.

Yeah I will. I can't believe it!!! Well if I can't have water flavourings then I am going to have a bar each week as a treat. I can't believe how horrible the water tastes without it now though lol. Oh well I will get used to it again! Easy come, easy go and all that! x

Mine took about 7-10 days(after stopping flavourings) to clear properly.xx

If you don't like plain water what about fruit teas? W8 did a really nice one. It tasted like ribena. Or just try and order some W8 water flavour online as that might not have the same things in it? Think they had a lemonadey one.

the rash feels better today and doesn't appear to have spread. unfortunately though i am not in ketosis anymore.

i'm so fed up right now it's unbelieveable. going to trade my new tub of summer berry flavouring for a tub of ketostix when i see my cdc as i only have one left.

Aw gem, that is pants.. i am allergic to MSG and similar additives so i get a little rash from the soups - it's managable but irritating : / Aspartame has a laxative effect on me too so I am just one ball of fun on this diet lol Or should that be ball of gas lmao

Hope you feel better soon, keep drinking the plain water it will 'flush' it through..

Do you mean a bottled flavoured water, without citric acid? Hopefully someone will come along with the name/brand.
