  • Rash from eating kale
    I ate kale for the first time on Monday. I only had a small bowl of fresh mixed green salad, so it wasn't entirely Kale. By Tuesday, I had a small rash on my left hip. I ignored it at first. Thursday evening, I decided to eat a large kale salad with other veggies and salmon, all of which I have eaten regularly aside from kale. Friday morning, my entire body was covered in the same rash that appeared Tuesday. I went to the ER. The doc said it was some type of allergic reaction. The ONLY thing I did/consumed different was the kale. I can't find much about it's reactions, though.
  • Double vision on levothyroxine
    Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
  • 5 years on rogaine use
    Im uncertain if any connection but I have been using Rogaine Foam for approx 5 years and early last year i developed a Melanoma directly in the area of use.

    I am curious to see if many others have had similar experiences.

    For the record my yearly checkup caught the Melanoma early and it was removed (twice) successfully.
  • Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
    I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.
  • Minoxidil (vesicular eczema)
    I began using topical Minoxidil and noticed about one month later small round fluid filled blisters on one finger on my left hand. The blisters were tender and I felt relief when I popped them. The skin inside was tender for a few days until it dried out. Then I developed the same blisters on one finger on my right hand. This went on for several months. Blisters were constantly forming on those fingers no matter what topical treatments I tried to resolve them. I felt it was due to the Minoxidil and after some research discovered others reported a similar reaction. The blisters resolved after stopping the Minoxidil. I switched to a product from Life Extension Super Saw Palmetto Nettle Root Formula with Beta-Sitosterol. The results were better than Minoxidil and I did not get any painful blisters on my fingers. What a relief.
