I just got back from a check up. I suffered from skin hive lately and it was really hard for me to take this in.
What is skin hive anyway?
In my own words, skin hive is the red bump (or swollen) appear on your skin. Pretty similar to mosquito bite, but in larger forms. And it is itchy and irritating :(
Just imagine these covering your whole body... Pic source from webmd
I have a fever few days back (since last Wednesday if I can recall), and I was really sick. The doctor gave me antibiotics for a week and like a normal antibiotics routine, you have to complete it. After I consume the capsules after breakfast, nothing really happened. But later that night, I started to scratch my feet until my epidermis turns to red and bleeds a little. It is really painful.
I texted my family and let them know my condition. My brother ask me to completely stop consuming the capsules. Mama got worried because I never had this in my life before. Trust me, I look terrible :(
Unfortunately for me now, I have to be very, very strict on my diet. After few food reaction experiment, it is safe to say, I should be vegetarian. Therefore, I have to change my diet entirely. So here is my lunch today.

My husband and I went to the pharmacy yesterday and the pharmacist said my hive is considered severe because it has flared up and it looks really bad. She gave me anti-histamine to stop the hives from spreading and asks me to completely stop consuming the antibiotics. I feel extremely helpless when it comes to science and health. Dear God help me...
I know that I'm not the only one who experienced this. I'm gonna keep track my with diet to see if there's any reaction.
