Friend of mine takes JolessaÂ® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol tablets) 0.15 mg / 0.03 mg
An extended-cycle oral contraceptive consisting of 84 pink active tablets each containing 0.15 mg of levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestogen and 0.03 mg of ethinyl estradiol.
During the 7 day off period between the 84 day on period she takes 500mg of Calcium D-Glucarate and 100mg of DIM to help her body rid itself of the excess hormones.
After the 7 day off period she starts the Jolessa again and the palms of her hands start to itch and become red and blotchy for about 30 minutes every morning even though she takes the Jolessa before bed(6-8 hours earlier).
She also takes over the counter allergy medication which she has done for several years.
Any idea what is causing the itchy red blotches on her palms for 30 minutes every morning?
