After 5 days of taking fenugreek I started breaking out in hives on my legs and arms. I've narrowed it down to either some carpet cleaner or fenugreek.
Has anyone else experienced a rash after using fenugreek?

There have been a couple of cases of allergy to fenugreek recorded in scientific literature, and if you have peanut or chickpea allergies, you should avoid fenugreek as it is a member of the same family of plants.

Hi, I had severe hives after taking fenugreek (while breastfeeding). I'm not sure it's the fenugreek or "postpartum hives" like I've read online. I'm not allergic to peanuts or chickpeas either. Can you tell me what worked for you? How long did they last?

I did not have allergic reactions, but I did get clogged milk ducts every time I would take it.  I am not sure if it created a yeast overgrowth or what?
