Recently I posted about my sudden acne increase, which I now believe is not actually acne. I initially noticed that I was getting red bumps on my forehead, but they never turned to acne. I also have red dots all over my back and sides of my body but they don't itch or hurt and haven't turned into acne. I noticed all of this after doing a high dose of a new fish oil after reading Martin Berkhan's recommendation to get 3g of DHA EPA a day. I am not positive that it's the fish oil that's messing me up but I did read that one possible reaction to fish oil is hives here: http://www.energyfirst.com/site/files/essential-fats/Fish-Oil-Side-Effects.htm
Has anyone else had this reaction? I switched from this fish oil: http://www.amazon.com/Nature-Made-Omega-3-1200mg-Softgels/dp/B0000DJAQU
The most pills I had ever taken with the first supplement was 4 at a time. The most of the second one I took was 6 at a time but only for a couple of days. I was trying to hit that target but I'm thinking it may have been a bad call.
I don't cook with any oils and I eat mostly beef, though it is not grass fed. I have never had this happen to me before so I am cutting out fish oil entirely for at least a week to see if it clears up.
It's not shingles or scabies from my google searching, so that's a relief. It's not contagious or my fiance would have it happening. I'm not sure it's hives exactly but maybe the first google searches that come up are just the extreme versions. I don't think it's stress related as I don't feel stressed out. Thanks for any help!
