ooh, i think we have viral die off....

So, we did the high dose Vit A protocol over the weekend. No negatives to report during the two days of high doses.

Monday - Dominic's lips were starting to get pretty chapped.

Today - granted, he picked at the dry spots until they bled (lovely new stim) - not only did they look almost blistery, but in the afternoon, a good inch chunk on his chin and cheek turned red and scaly.

i'm wondering if we aren't seeing some viral die off, and i have talked to the doc's office, they are going to speak to the doctor and call me back to tell me what, if anything, we should do about it.

here's an article that talks about die off. The official name is Herxheimer reaction: http://www.pyroenergen.com/articles08/herxheimer-reaction.htm
