Welcome to Healingwell.  As your first post, it's better to start your own thread and introduce yourself, rather than reply to a post that's 2 years old.  I think any reaction like rashes or itchy bumps should be reported to your doctor.  He'll probably tell you to stop taking it (which you've already done) since it sounds like an allergic reaction.  So, please call your doctor.
