  • If you have been feeling itchy while on the HCG Diet, you're not alone...

    Recently I learned of a not so common side effect of the HCG Hormone... Itchiness.

    In the HCG Diet 411 Forum today, one of our members posted a thread about how they constantly feel itchy since they started the HCG Diet. I'll be honest with you, this is something that I haven't heard too much about, so I did a little bit of research.

    It seems that it is more common for a person to feel kind of itchy at the injection site. Then there are some who feel extremely itchy all over their body. Others say that they mainly feel itchy on the palms of their hands and on the bottom of their feet.

    But this isn't exclusive to people using injections. In fact, half the people who have this happen aren't even doing the HCG Shots. This can occur in people who are using the Sublingual drops as well.

    So why do people feel itchy after taking the HCG Hormone?

    Well, there could be a couple of different reasons...

    1. Food Allergy - You might feel itchy if you are having an allergy to one of the new foods you are eating. This will happen if you eat something that you didn't know you were allergic to.

    If this is the case, you will want to be mindful of that particular food. So be sure to keep a detailed food journal. This way you will know what you have eaten the next time this happens.

    2. HCG Allergy - If you are feeling itchy after taking the HCG Hormone, it could be that you are having a small reaction to the HCG. However, for most people it isn't enough to cause concern.

    But if you are one of these people who experience unbearable itchiness you may want to talk with your doctor.

    One thing that might help is using plenty of Aveeno moisturizer - Also, try not to take hot hot baths or showers. Some people say that taking a slightly warm bath seems to help.

    A large majority of the comments that I read, say that the itchiness subsided after the first couple of weeks after starting the diet. There were also a lot of people who say that they feel itchy only around the time they go to bed. But for others, it is all throughout the day.

    I think it's also worth mentioning that itchiness is a common side effect found in pregnant women. This makes sense, because the HCG Hormone is largely produced by women during pregnancy.

    So even though this is an annoying side effect, most people say that it's not enough to make them stop using the HCG Weight Loss Diet. You be the judge. Good luck my friends.
