I have been having a dry patchy terribly itchy spot on my forehead. The only thing I can trace it to is the fact I have been taking glucosamine chondroitin. I don't know it it's related, but I found it puzzling that I'd have this reaction. Is it a possible allergy?
: My mother had an allergic reaction to her glucosamine, chondroitin, and msm supplement. This supplement greatly helps her, however she recently began to experience the same symptoms she has when she eats shellfish. I have found that although glucosamine is extracted from shellfish, this is not a common side effect. My mother's main side effect is itching. Chondroitin may cause skin rashes.
: HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCED ANYTHING LIKE THIS WITH EITHER GLUCOSAMINE, CHONDROITIN, OR MSM?
