Aluminum Allergy .. Links to fibromyalgia and red dye allergies?
After reading everyone's post .. I feel somewhat comforted that I am not alone.
I am realizing I am allergic to aluminum. I have had a rash for over 6 months and couldn't figure it out until just now. It's my Deodarant. I too fell for the "crystal" natural Deodarant. It too has aluminum. I've been changing everything to try to figure it out .. Shampoos, hair products, deodarants. Finally! I get it.
My question is ... How does this relate to red dye and lake dyes? I get terrible migraine headaches from these dyes, but no rash.
Does this mean I'm probably allergic to Nickle also?
I'm taking Lyrica for fibromyalgia ... But curious if I really have this mysterious disease or just effects of too much aluminum in my system? Any suggestions on the best way to detox? Also, I'd like to understand why it's happening? Obviously everyone doesn't have to deal with this. Is it genetics? I think my 8 year old son has the same problem. Is this possible? His dad calls me crazy for even thinking its possible :/
