I am wondering if that's what is going on?
For the most part I feel great - more energy, losing weight, better digestion, my blood sugar is normal.
(That last one is huge - I have diabetes and I was very worried that more carbs and fruit and less protein would mean my blood sugar would be harder to manage. The opposite is true, after only 10 days my blood sugar is fluctuating between 80-110, perfectly normal. I've even added fruit smoothies and OJ to my diet! Before, when I was trying to eat a "healthy" diet but counting carbs and eating meat and dairy with every meal and snack I was still dealing with high blood sugar and instances of hypoglycemia. But, I digress... :))
The issue I am having now is my skin is a mess. I have scalp psoriasis but until a few days ago it was being well managed with my medications. Suddenly they aren't working and it's really bad, worse than ever. It's so bad that I have two secondary infections from it, an ear infection and cellulitis on my scalp. Also, I am having bad acne on my face, neck and back and random pimples in other spots (even my legs!). I have an itchy and sore rash in my armpit. My skin, in general, feels sore and inflamed.
Could it be a food allergy? The only food I've really added to my diet that I've never had much of before is coconut in the form of coconut oil and milk. Could it be a "healing crisis"?
I haven't switched shampoos, laundry soap, lotions - nothing like that. The only change is in my diet. I am not eating processed foods other than store bought nut milks and tofu.
This is really disheartening because I had hoped going vegan would make my skin better and that maybe I could go off my psoriasis medications.
