11-19-2007, 06:58 PM
this is my 5th day of eating raw. my skin is going crazy! i usually have nice skin. if i get a break out it's maybe 5 pimples at the most. i have bumps all over my face! i have them even up around my eyelids. i've never had that before. is this just part of my body detoxing? has anyone else had this? and is there anything i can do to lessen/get rid of them? or do i just have to wait it out?

Are they pimples?
If so, breakouts are a common detox sympton, I get a breakouts as a mild detox when I do 100% for any length of time. Nothing to worry about.
If they aren't pimples, then keep an eye on them, my guess is that they'll disappear soon.
Everyone goes through detox differently, it depends on the individual, how good their diet as before doing raw, if they drank lots of coffee or alcohol, smoked or ate heaps of processed foods.
It doesn't seem fair does it? You've been so good foodwise the last 5 days and now this! But it's really worth it when you come out the other side of a detox, the housecleaning has occurred, something that couldn't happen till you started on the clean food.
If it isn't detox, could it be an allergic reaction? Have you been eating a food lately that's new in your diet?
Hope you heal quickly!

Not to worry......it will pass. I think I broke out and stayed broken out for the first month.
