I started taking Rainbow Light vegan prenatal vitamins yesterday and broke out in hives all over my body, along with horrible itching and swelling in my fingers. It was bad! My doctor said to just try another brand and I was thinking about Deva but wondered if anyone else has experienced an allergic reaction as well and has a recommendation of one they tried that worked? Thanks!
Hmm, I dont' know about the finger swelling, but I know I break out into hives for a little while if I take my B12 supplement on an empty stomach. This is from the niacin that is also in the supplement. Did you take it on an empty stomach? I wonder what it was that caused the reaction. I hope you find one that works!
I took it with a big bowl of oatmeal in the morning and the hives actually started that evening immeditaly after I got done with my run. They were the worst in places where my clothes held the sweat against my body (gross, sorry) so my husband thinks maybe when the sweat came out something in it had a reaction with my skin. The prenatal vitamin is the only thing that I put in or on my body that is different than my normal routine.
