Hi there,

Please tell me if you are taking any supplements that contain garlic, are eating any foods prepared or have consumed either of these in the recent past. If you have, when did you stop? How long have you felt this way? Any known medical problems? What color are the spots that you mentioned? Are the spots raised, red, itchy, white, warm to touch? Where on the body are the spots located? Have you traveled outside the USA recently? Are you nauseous? Can you keep liquids down?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Hi again,

I am very concerned for you. Based on what you are telling me, you may be in a dangerous situation. Since I do not know you, all I am able to do is give you some hotline numbers and instruct you to call if you feel you are in an abusive situation. Also, if you suspect you are being poisoned, be very careful of the foods you take in. The following is a list of 800 numbers you can call for help:

National Domestic Violence Hotline 1 800 799 SAFE

Abuse Victim Hotline 1(NNN) NNN-NNNN/p>

I hope this information is helpful and you get the help you need. If in immediate danger, call 911 or your local emergency number
