  • Boil-like spots when I drink coffee! autoimmune response or other reason?

    I'm puzzled as to why this might happen and I'd appreciate any help working it out:

    When I drink coffee (or tea) I get large, red painful spots that are like small boils, on my legs. They appear on the front of my lower legs, knees and between my thighs. When I stop drinking coffee or tea I don't get any more new spots. Could this be due to some autoimmune reaction? Or could it have something to do with my having PCOS and insulin resistance?

    Is it possible you have a caffeine allergy? (picture of hives on the link)

    ...also, are you putting anything in it that you might be allergic to, like coconut milk or other things?

      Ok, I'm curious. Why have you had another cup once you figured out what was triggering the reaction?
      Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

        PCOS/IR probably. I get something like that when eating a lot of sugar or diet coke. I have PCOS/IR. For me, it is correlated to my hormones/diet.
        I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

        You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.
