- Gnc hair skin and nails gave me a severe rash and hives
I've been using GNC Hair Skin and Nails tablets for about a month and I burst out in a severe rash and hives on my hands, arms and neck. My hair didn't grow much of a difference and my nails, though they were stronger,kept breaking after a few weeks.I discontinued taking the tablets about a week now but the rash has not improved much. I will advise others to go natural and forget these tablets that offers you miracle results because there is always a catch to it.
- Allergic to ivp dye bad reaction to pyridium
I am allergic to IVP dye (Iodine) I had discovered this over 20 years ago when I had kidney stones and was injected with the IVP. I was asked beforehand if I was allergic to shellfish and told them I didn't know since at the time I had never eaten seafood. After the injected me and walked out of the room my throat swelled and I couldn't breathe, hives formed I had to grab whatever I could to throw around the room to get someones attention. They rushed in and gave me a shot of adrenaline. WHEW!! I had taken Pyridium on many occasions in the following years with no problems.Last night I took one and had a SEVERE reaction. I think the problem is I had not eaten much in 2 days and the iodine hit me HARD! :-/ first I started itching allover, had what looked like small mosquito bites all over my arms, My hands swelled and I felt hot then I had what felt like heartburn, chest pains right between my breasts and deep down that would come and fade ALL NIGHT and to top it off I was on a date! This morning I feel fine. I had taken about 4 tablespoons of Benadryl and later chewed some aspirin thinking heart attack!! :-/
