I had started a new keto diet and added additional fats and salads.
I also began taking some supplements Kelp, berberine, and monk fruit powder to supplement absence of sugar in my tea and oatmeal.
Upon reflection I thought it might be the supplements causing the allergic reaction.
I had a slightly elevated fever, intense itching from the rash and facial swelling primarily on my cheeks l. I looked like a freaking chipmunk.
I stopped all supplements and am taking Prednisone 20 mg, Tylenol and Claritin per my GP.!My rash and swelling subsided until this afternoon and I am itching again! I only ate oatmeal this morning and 1 cup of black tea!
I resumed the Prednisone and and Claritin this afternoon.
Why do all maladies send us scrambling to ER in the middle of the late overnight?
