Itchy skin


I’ve increased my fruit intake, I now have itchy skin like I did when I ate processed sugars. Why is this?


Terrain answer:

Itchy skin is caused by acids being expelled out through the skin, which irritate the skin cells. This irritation makes us uncomfortable and leads us to want to scratch the acids off the skin surface.
Increasing water intake can help with itching as it helps to dilute the acids and improves elimination through primary channels.
