Hi. Has anyone contracted a horrible, itchy, rash from drinking green tea? If so, what did you use to get rid of it; or at least relieve it? Also, how long did it take to get out of your system for the rash to stop itching and go away? Any help is will be appreciated! Thank you.
Green tea as such doesn't have any side-effect rather it has plenty of antioxidants that your body needs so much, but if you overdose it you may get a re-bound effect.
If you drink more than 5 to 6 cups of green tea daily you may experience sleeplessness, irregular heart beat, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, loss of appetite or other caffeine-related side effects but hardly skin rashes.
whereas some individuals who are allergic or hypersensitive to caffeine or tannin should avoid drinking green.
You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted.
