Harry, I tried prokarin, but it didnt work for me. However, when I do a niacin flush, i get very itchy all over. I have read that this is because of a release of histamine. At first I thought nothing of it since it was just to my skin, but then it occured to me that prokarin is a patch applied to the skin.
Has your wife tried a niacin flush? did she notice anything?
The "itching" with the flush only occured the first 1 or 2 times. Now I only get the plesant flush. However now, if a few hours after the flush I take a hot shower, I get itching alone like you would not believe for about 15 minutes.jimmylegs wrote:i wouldn't say it itches for me, more of a prickling sensation, but i go hilariously bright fire engine red, a real full on flush for sure.
Just to be clear, it was with the niacin I had the skin reaction. I only got skin reactions with prokarin when I left the patch on way to long (and I guess the bandage loosened), or as you say, I didnt make an air tight seal.HarryZ wrote:If the Prokarin patch is applied properly (air tight) you should not have any skin irritation at all.
