The following was posted by whosyourdaddy02 in the sticky above on UCP-1: Rash – Some users develop a rash on usnic acid and sodium usniate. This appears to an allergic reaction to some substance within usnic acid. What we have witnessed is that the rash is mostly present in higher dosages – usually above 750mg. In addition, the rash has subsided in all people who have reported the rash. For some it took a few days, others around 2 weeks to completely subside.
I also noted from the following thread that several people had a problem with rash: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...ght=usnic+acid
I took UCP-1 at the recommended dosage but I developed a rash that I believe was attributable to UCP-1. In my case, it wasn't severe. I have suffered from hives a couple times in my life and the UCP-1 rash wasn't nearly so bad. But it was bothersome.
This is my question that whosyourdaddy02's post didn't seem to address: If a rash develops could it mean the body is adjusting to the product and that one could wait for the rash to subside and begin again? Or, does it mean those who develop rashes just can't take the product? Or, does it depend on the person?
I would also welcome other people's experiences of developing a rash from UCP-1.
