Ginagirl, you replied to a post a little over a month ago, where I asked how best to heal a fractured metatarsal bone. You suggested to look into sulphur and silica (which I did), and that sometimes sulphur is the missing link.
I had already been taking silica, so added sulphur, as I've never supplemented with that, but eat quite a bit of sulphur foods.
Within, a week of starting the sulphur crystals (mine is 99.9 pure OptMSM, methylsulfonylmethane) my neck started breaking out with a red itchy rash. I continued with the msm for a few more days, then stopped. The rash went away, indicating the msn was causing the rash. Then I gave it another go four to five days later.
The rash came back, so I stopped the msm, again, and have not restarted it. Rash seemed be clearing, but then returned and also my eyelids and inside corners of my eyes are a bit swollen and itchy these last few days. Eyes are clear, just the skin around the eyes are affected. Nothing has relieved the itching (it's not terribly bad, more mild) and redness. I tried zinc and arnica cream on my neck, but it didn't help and being on my neck, I had to wash it off in the morning.
So my question...do you think it's detox or could I possibly be allergic? I did have cabbage the night before this last flareup and I believe there's sulphur in cabbage.
I read that hardly no one is allergic to sulphur, but my daughter had what they thought was an allergic reaction to a sulfa antibiotic twenty five years ago, so makes me wonder.
I have been drinking tons of water (with salt) today and eating very little to try and flush my system.
I have a trip in a couple days and would really like to get this cleared up before I leave.
