Food Allergies That Cause Eczema

Food Allergies That Cause Eczema

Does anyone know what is the most common Allergy for Eczema when you have Contact Dermatitis? I have Struggled with this 20 years ago and I have not done anything about it until last year, I have started using things when it comes to dry skin between the fingers and hands, and Fragrance Free Lotion does help to make it smooth and not dry but there has to be more story to that then the Fragrance Issue.

There are some chemicals that start with Methyl- and then various continuations such as Methylchoroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolione that can set off eczema. The chemicals are in shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotions, creams, etc.... Many products in the pharmacy have these 2 chemicals. Both will set off eczema. By avoiding these specific 2 chemicals, I can avoid contact dermatitis that is avoidable.

Dairy was the problem for me. I no longer get bad eczema on my hands since giving it up. I gave up all dairy for a while, and now I can tolerate yogurt and cheese, but milk or cream give me an instant flare-up.

I did the skin allergy test too. I have all these skin allergies and even the nurse practitioner doing the testing said that this was the first time she had someone with so many allergies. I am even allergic to both nickel and gold. All :US coin money has nickel in it and gold jewelry will irritate my skin. The methyl--- family of chemicals seems to leave me itchy and scratching. I did not realize that I was aggravating my allergies when I was younger and did cashier work. My hands were irritated and inflamed because of constant contact with money at the time. Now I work with paper documents in document imaging and use plastic to make all purchases. Too much contact with coin money or bills that rubbed against coin money will irritate my hands. Possibly I will simply never live a life of wealth since my destiny seems to point otherwise.
