How does a person tell if the symptoms they are having are detox or from an adverse affect from the iodine? I have hypothyroidism and I've been on magnascent and lugos for about 3 months or more and for the last 3 weeks I can barely brush my teeth because the inside of my mouth is so sore...cheeks, tongue & gums. I'm also breaking out in an itchy rash and sores on my ankles, back and upper chest.. I use aloe vera gell to take care of the pain and itching to some extent. I stopped the Iodine for three or 4 days last week and the symptoms subsided. Any clues??
