    Hey folks, so today I seem to have come out in hives/rash, not heaps of them but some of them and I wondered if this is a side effect of the VLCD? Anyone else had this issue? I never ever get anything like this...:confused:

    I don't get prickly heat at all...and it's bloody freezing here! Just trying to rule out the diet, I guess rapid (well not so rapid for me) weight loss might cause all sorts of things! Just wondered if anyone else had the same sort of reaction... x

    I'm starting to think that's what it is! Being off yeast/wheat/carbs is a big shock for my carb-addicted body!!! I guess this stuff has to come out somehow...might go for an Epsom salts bath and see if I hurry it on!x

    Hi,
    I did lipotrim for a few weeks last year and came out in a rash on my elbows, hands, thighs and knees. Doctor prescribed me steroid cream and anti viral tablets and it went after a few weeks. It was quite itchy and was misdiagnosed as chicken pox!
    Is it the same sort of thing?

    Gosh no, nothing on such a large scale! But if it persists for more than 5 days, including today, I'll be heading to the doctor too! x Thanks for info x

    Yeah it's a funny one really I feel Ill now got a real dodgy stomach and I'm not sure whether it's the diet or a bug going round as someone else was poorly at work today. I don't like admitting it's the diet though because then everyone tries to tell you to stop!! And we don't need that do we?!!
