Although relatively rare, allergies to folic acid (vitamin B9) are not impossible. The manifestations of this allergy can appear in a mild form, namely only in the form of regular itching, but also severe enough to cause a reddish rash and lesions all over the body, swelling, peeling skin, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, shortness of breath, palpitations, cold sweat, to shock (anaphylactic shock). This allergy occurs when your body considers the entry of folic acid into the body as dangerous, even though it is not. Genetic factors are strongly suspected of having an effect on this allergy.
Not only allergic to folic acid, your complaint may also arise due to allergies to other substances, such as seafood, nuts, eggs, cold, dust mites, animal hair, and so on. Or, it could be that your complaints actually appear not related to allergies, but due to insect bites, skin infections, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, stress, excessive pressure on certain body parts, and so on.
We recommend that you consult your condition directly to a doctor or a dermatologist. You should also tell the doctor about your condition, who is currently undergoing a pregnancy program, so that the doctor can adjust the treatment given so as not to interfere with the pregnancy program.
Folic acid is a type of nutrient whose function is important to increase fertility, not only women, but also men. Consumption of antioxidant-rich folic acid is believed to stabilize hormonal conditions in the body, so that menstruation and ovulation can run more regularly. If you are allergic to supplements that contain folic acid, then you can temporarily consume other foods that are also rich in folic acid, for example avocados, nuts, dark green leafy vegetables, cabbage, liver, asparagus, cereals, etc. help support your pregnancy program.
Hope it helps ..
