I had been taking Natren probiotics (6 billion/day) for a while with no problems. On the advice of a nutritionist I switched brands to one that is 15 billion/day. I took it a few days in a row and felt like my face was more itchy/rashy/irritated than usual. I switched to every other day and then went away for a week and didn't take it with me. I had a few really good days while I was away.
Over the weekend I pretty much ate whatever I wanted, so I don't know if something in my diet (extra sugar, peanuts, etc.) caused my to have an itchy rashy flare up, or if it was the probiotics I tried to take again yesterday.
I took one around 9:30 in the morning and by last night my face was really itchy with some rashy areas and a few bumps with a little weeping.
Has anyone experienced die-off from probiotics and does this sound like it could be? I'm going to stop taking them again for a while and go back to my normal diet and if everything clears I'll try it again and see if it happens. Just not sure if it could actually be a reaction to this particular probiotic or die-off, or just a coincidence and it was a reaction to something I ate.
