I did a Biology Course about 5 years ago. Can't remember what the experiment was I was doing but I used Iodine and instantly I got a massive headache. The back of my eyes were burning (felt like they were on fire). I had itchy skin,trouble breathing and dry retching.
Two years later I was doing a Forensic Science Course and I used Iodine to extract fingerprints. Same thing happened. So, I went to the doctor and he said I have a mild allergy to Iodine.
On both occasions it took about a week to get over it. I'm wondering if anyone else has these symptoms?
I have heard of people having headaches and stomach pains. You come in with the highest reactions so far.
Dr. David Brownstein recommends a treatment called NAET, an acupressure technique used to overcome an iodine allergy. Their web site is Nambudripod's Allergy Elimination Technique Or, you can call 714-523-3068.
Let me know how this works out for you.
