    Skin hives with Sustain 3wks into use?


    Has anyone ever come down with skin hives in the application areas of sustain? I am currently fighting a bout with it after 3 weeks of use, it just sprung up last week. I have discontinued use but the skin reaction is still there....any help/info/insight? Really sucks(aside from the uncomfortable itching/unsightly welts,lol) because i was really liking the product up till then....

    lol,i'm sure this thread would be a mile long if i was asking for users who DIDNT have a skin reaction to it....i'm looking for an explanation/prediction on what might have caused a delayed allergic reaction in the formula or if there might be some kind of a topical interaction etc

    Only reports of rash that I know of were from people who had severly dry skin due to their location having extremely low humidity during the winter. It was recommended they use Aloe, emu oil or some other type of moisturizer

    It’s possible that you had a reaction to a couple ingredients that we have removed in subsequent batches (ie lot 2500)

    Shoot me a PM with your info. We will get you taken care of.

    I had bad skin reactions, I quit using because I figured in was because of the dry harsh winter. However, the lots on the two bottles I have are 2200. Are those the lots with the ingredients that may have been causing the reactions?

    With the newest 2500^ batches the reaction’s are happening with fewer people now – probably only 1% of our customer base. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that 2200 will give you rash. Did you have problems with this batch before?

    We figured that there is probably a small # of people that are just allergic to the topical resveratrol/benzoflavone itself since we removed virtually all known allergens or anything that could possibly cause a problem in the most recent batches.

    I have two bottles of 2200 and I just can't use them. My skin goes crazy just a few hours after use. Huge rash. The thing is, when I first started using this way back in November, I think, it worked great. It was the best suppliment I ever tried. Then I got a batch that made my skin go crazy. PP even sent me a bottle for free, but same thing, skin rash. I just bought Toco 8, Endo Amp, and so more Sustain a couple of weeks ago, but I got lot # 2200 with this one, I applied it and same thing, skin rash. Since I ordered in June, how come I did not get lot #2500?

    If you ordered only a couple weeks ago you should have gotten atleast a 2600, so that makes me wonder...

    Shoot me a PM with your info bro..

    Thanks.

    As of now we’ve eliminated just about all possible allergens, but we are now dealing with a climate issue with the remaining 3-4% of users that are having reactions…

    People in extremely dry or humid environments are more susceptible to irritation from chemical interactions. However, we are about to make a big breakthrough on this. We will be sending a mass mailer out when it happens… and sending out free samples to past customers with interactions…

    Sounds good. I absolutely love the product, and have another bottle that I was going to use to continue the cycle to 50 days...should I use it?

    If the spots dont bother you then go right ahead... they will go away when you stop the product.

    This reminds me of the delayed rash I got after a short S1+ cycle a couple years ago. It was at least 1-1/2 months after my last application and I got crazy hives on all my application areas. They didn't itch, but were very unsightly.

    The puffy nipples sound like a side-effect of something else... are you just getting off cycle or anything? Using any forskolin sups? Other pro-hormones?

    the only other thing im using is bromocriptine.

    i should also mention that im trying to recover after taking propecia (finasteride) which mesed up all my hormones. i currently have them all under control now tho, with the exception of DHT which is low.

    ive used sustain alpha before, and it took 2 weeks for the itchiness and sensetive nipples to set in. now that i started using it again, they both started up after only 2 days of use this time.

    DHT antagonizes estrogen, so having lower than normal levels will make you more susceptible to gyno. It will take some time to get a normal DHT/estrogen ratio back, since finesteride tends to linger in the system for quite awhile. Keeping a low BF% and high insulin sensitivity will help help you overal by keeping estrogen in control.

    You may want to look into stinging nettle for raising your DHT.
