I'll try to search for the itchy thread! :-)
i have severe allergies (carry an Epi-pen and Benedryl at all times). I have used Benedryl quite a bit on the program and it never affected my loss. I used to have a terrible reaction to the IP Leek soup (itching, swollen throat). However, there is a big difference between dry skin itching (something I have now because I live in Denver and the air is so dry) and allergic itching. If the itching is not relieved with lotion (dry skin brushing before showering each morning, then use lotion after getting out of the shower), then it is an allergy.
If it is an allergy-you need to start recording everything you eat and monitoring your body's reaction.
