A mega-dose of a non water soluble vitamin would work great since you can store it in fat - like vitamin A. However, vit C and zinc are water soluble so you'd just pee out the excess and be deficient again in a few days without a regular dose. (more)

Holy crap. I think you just diagnosed something I've had for years that no dermatologist could ever figure out. In fact I'm scheduled for a "punch" biopsy in a few weeks (it's as pleasant as it sounds). Mine looks exactly like your photos.

Maybe you are allergic to salmon. I get rashes on my back when I eat things I'm allergic to, such as seafood, gluten, and sulfites. Try eating clean without fish or eating dirty with fish?

Malar rash can be a symptom of many diseases. The first thing I would think of is lupus. You should be checked out by a doctor.

Baking soda is very alkaline and too harsh for me. You may have messed up the pH of your skin & gotten a fungal infection. Try some coconut oil.

Stef, If it shows up during "allergy season", I'd hazard that you may be looking at atopic dermatitis, which is an allergic rash. Unfortunately, even with an immaculate diet, dermatitis doesn't usually respond. You can slow down recurrences, but... (more)

just sounds like too much for your body at once, sounds like a rash. Try cutting it out for a few days and see if it clears up. I don't like supplementing things for this reason, i react to everything.
