  • From this study (19 hours ago):

  • Rash first noticed Sunday morning. Was taking coq10 for at least 10 years. In past 5 yrs had added 50 mg ubiquinol taken concurrently with the coq10 due to the fact that the coq10 allegedly cannot be converted by one my age. Current dose was: 400mg + 200 mg ubiquinol twice a day with food and water. Changed brands of coq10 and added the ubiqinol twice a day as coq10 seemed to have become ineffective nad I had reasons to believe I had very low coq10 levels in my body as gums bled if teeth flossed and I had had a several months duration hyperthyroid episode from last Summer until about January.[All of the hyperthyroid symptoms subsided by January.

    One week into the ubiquinol enhanced coq10 protocol I had a little itching on my left leg. Two days later I noticed what looked like it might be a cluster of tiny insect bits on the left leg along the crest of the tibia. I thought maybe insects from an old, infirm dog with an eye infection I had been patting on Saturday afternoon had attacked my leg. Within a day the redness grew greater and 4 focal areas on rash emerged lower tibia 1/2 inch to 1 inch apart. On the evening of the second day itching began on the right lower leg and a similar but more diffuse rash appeared more lateral than on the left leg location. So far the right leg rash is confined to discrete spots of redness that do not meld together like the rash on the left leg. There is a small amount of itching on both legs but not a lot. I do not know for sure if the rash is form the dog or from the coq10/ubiquinol. I was about to discontinue the coq10 just before the rash started, as I thought I was not able to convert it due to my age. I had planned to continue only the ubiquinol. Since the rash could be from these substances, though, I am discontinuing both of them for at least 3 days to see what happens.
