Can facial flushing be caused by taking Vitamin D?
I was diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency based on lab work and was taking a liquid Vitamin D to increase it. After 8-10 days my face began flushing severely and I had joint pain. I quit taking the liquid form and prayed for sun!
I recently had more blood work done and I still do not have enough Vitamin D and our weather is not being cooperative so my doctor suggested Cod Liver Oil. I have been taking this now for about 8 days and the flushing has comeback. Do you think this is an allergic reaction? I live in the Pacific Northwest and sun is not a daily occurrence. I'm very frustrated and can't stand the itching/flushing on my face. Do you know of any other way to get Vitamin D benefits?
