So this weekend was f*cking awful for me. Monday last week I start itching at my ankles and it spread up to my wrists on Tuesday. Didn't become suspicious of it until Thursday. Friday morning, say 3-4AM, I wake up in agony ravaging my legs with my nails to find I've broken out all over my arms and legs. I managed to get through work but it progressively took over my body through the weekend. I left work early Saturday and took two sick days (not proud of that). Now I'm on 60mg prednisone and its getting better but still sucks!
I'm theorizing it's a food allergy to either perch or cottage cheese, although the allergist suspects a type IV reaction by contact much like poison ivy. My question is: has anyone ever had an allergy to ONE food but not an entire food group? I don't have problems with whey/dairy but could it just be cottage cheese alone? Same goes for fish/shellfish. Trying to figure out what happened here.
I'm itching (pun intended) to lift again. I wanna hit a cross-train bis/tris but worried ill get worse. Has anyone ever doesnt a workout with hives breakout? Is this a bad idea? I mean im not contagious and its not gonna spread. Thanks.
