In Reply to: Exema - food allergies? posted by Angie on August 27, 2000 at 13:30:42:
: : I have some food allergies which include chocolate, dairy products, possible wheat. I am having problems with exema it's bad all over my face, arms and torso. I have cut out these foods almost completely. I am still having trouble, I have tried just drinking apple juice for a couple of days which helps clear things up temporarialy, but it just keeps coming back. I have tried eliminating other foods such as tomatoes carrots breads. Anybody have any ideas as to what I should try next. Is it possible that it is stress? Any information anybody could give would be appreciated
This may be way off base, but have you tried cutting out vegetable oil? It is made out of soybeans and it is in a lot of packaged foods (even sliced bread). My 13 month old is allergic to milk and soy proteins. She had an exema like rash on her body the first two months of her life.
You may also want to get a scratch test (foods) done at an allergist office near you.
