Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the symptoms of skin rash?

When you have poor blood clotting or nutrient deficiencies you may have red, pink or purple spots on your skin that can also itch. What is important to know is that for healthy functioning of the skin we need several vitamins. Let’s look at the known remedies for this condition.

Cause #1: Bile deficiency

Bile is a very important liquid that is produced in your liver and stored in your gallbladder. The main function of bile is digestion of fats as well as certain vitamins. Additionally, If you consume too much fat and are unable to digest it, this can cause skin rash. In such a case purified bile salts can help you digest fats.

Remedies:

  • Take purified bile salts right after each meal

  • If you consume too much fat, try to temporarily reduce the amount

Cause #2: Vitamin B2 deficiency

Vitamin B2 is very important for healthy levels of the skin as well as for proper digestion of fats. The more fat you eat, the more B2 you need. Lack of B2 in the body can cause skin rash.

Remedies:

  • Consume nutritional yeast

  • Consume an activated B2 supplement

  • Avoid refined foods (like refined grains)

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Avoid tanning beds

Cause #3: Allergies

Allergy means intolerance to certain types of foods or environmental elements, like pollen. Your body overreacts to the thing causing allergy (allergen), creating a lot of symptoms like inflammation, irritation, etc. The best way to see if you have an allergy is to look back and see what you ate or were exposed to just before getting a rash. Chances are that there was an unusual type of food or an environmental substance you were exposed to.

Remedies:

  • Take apple cider vinegar (1 to 2 teaspoons stirred into about a cup of water)

  • Consume folate

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

If rash started after you began a ketogenic diet

If you have just started the Healthy Keto® diet and have noticed a skin rash, it can be caused either by allergy to a certain keto food, or it’s a reaction as your body adapts to a new healthy diet.

  • If you just started on a keto diet

    • take B vitamins (nutritional yeast)

    • take more potassium

    • this rash should go away the more you adapt to the diet

  • If the above didn’t help, spot the exact foods that are causing the intolerance and substitute them with other keto-friendly foods

  • See if you have any hidden carbs on your diet--check product descriptions and see if there are any carbs or sugar there that you didn’t know about, and avoid them (Vegetable carbs wouldn’t count as these do not raise insulin.)

Detoxification:

Additionally, while on keto and intermittent fasting, your body may go through a detoxification cycle. This is because you are burning and breaking down your body fat, which releases toxins that were stored in the fatty tissue. Therefore, fat-burning can cause this reaction.

  • Increase vegetables

  • Take bentonite clay on an empty stomach
