    Hi!

    Some weeks ago my skin started to burn and itch. Mostly in the face and the scalp with redness on each side of the nose. But the rest of the body has had a burning sensation too, worsend by touching/rubbing. I discovered that taking glycine brings it to almost zero. I also have breathlessness (or what its called), and this is also helped by glycine, but I need a bigger dose, like 15g.

    One suspicion is salicylates, but that's just a thought. Any ideas? I am not sure if this is also connected with the blod red spots that I also have been getting more or less at the same time.

    Glycine is good for detoxifying. If it's salycilates, or histamines or some other substance, possibly the glycine is helping get rid of them.

    I see. At least I am glad I so quickly found something that is helping.
