Try a zinc tally test AKA zinc challenge.  This is a liquid form of zinc that you'd put a few drops of on your tongue and taste.  If you notice no taste at all, i.e. just like water, then you need zinc.  The stronger the taste, the... (more)

I guess is because once you don't eat too much carbs, you lose water from the muscles at the beginning. I think you should drink more water. But i'm not an expert, sorry.

Bug bite? Contact allergy? Who knows! It's not hives, so it's unlikely to be diet-related. Seriously, chillax, you're not dying.

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)

Depletion varies. If you have a high need for vitamin A (retinol), you can quickly deplete any stores. We do have a limited amount of ability to absorb vitamin A (retinol) and beta carotene. You might consume 1000% of vitamin A (retinol) in a... (more)
