Faced with a glut of toxic elimination pathways are not sufficient, so the skin starts to resent these effects by many ways (dermatitis, rash, hives, etc.). These skin reactions are the main ways the body warns that this is unbalanced due to an inadequate diet.
Emotional stress: This is another of the main causes of appearance of rashes. The states of anxiety, irritation, rejection or dislike, being very nervous or constantly defensive are emotional causes of the appearance of hives, rashes and allergies.
