Hi there everyone,
I started using Huel last October (V2.3 vanilla) for breakfast every day with a 3 scoops to 500ml water, mostly with a flavour boost and/or frozen fruits sometimes on its own.
Around that time I started getting a nasty looking rash on my legs and it has persisted ever since, coming and going at random it seems. The rash isn’t itchy and it doesn’t hurt it just looks bad and it’s annoying.
I’m trying to rule out that it might be the Huel. I started various new things around that time including taking vitamin D tablets, exercising more and some new clothes.
Now I’ve stopped taking the Viatmin D, went back to old clothes and regrettably haven’t been exercising as much and the rash still kept on coming and going.
So I stopped the Huel too and still the rash has persisted so far after 4 weeks of none of the things above.
Just wondering if anyone else has had anything similar and whether it might be the Huel as I’m stuck now.
I’ve been to the doctors and they’ve fobbed me off with various creams that have no effect. I’ve gone for blood tests but no results yet. The doctors seem to think it’s some form of vasculitic rash.
It’s a mystery so far but I hope it’s not Huel related as it really suits my lifestyle as a good quick nutritional breakfast!
PS here are some pics of the rash as an example…
