Atopic Dermatitis and food sensitivityHello
I am 27 year old male and had atopic dermatitis since I was 1.4 years old, I had times it was worse I had rash on my face and body and dry and scaly skin and times I was totally clean for months and I never paid much attention on thinking what may cause my symptoms so it never had really disappeared. in 2006 when I was 24 it got worse,me and my wife were living in a hotel for a month and eating every morning at the hotels restaurant and I noticed my condition got really bad I was very red in my entire body and fluffy eyes and itchiness which was followed by dryness, and from that moment it just got worse and worse.
I started looking for answers on the internet and found a direct connection between the foods I'm eating and my condition, which helped me but I still did not know what exactly triggers my rashes.
after 6 months I went to see a physician which specializes in natural healing and she told me to start eliminating foods that might be suspicious for triggering and worsening my condition. I discovered that I became sensitive to: Milk, Soy, Eggs, Wheat. so I started a diet without those foods but I wasn't consistent with keeping up with my diet, so when my condition got better I let myself eat foods I'm not supposed to and got the rashes again and went back to elimination diet again and so it went until 10 months ago when my condition got even worse then it was, I discovered I am now sensitive to many more things then just milk, soy, wheat, and eggs, it's also citric acids, and most of the meats like chicken pork and beef, I tried organic chicken and It had no effect on my last time I tried. I feel my condition is deteriorating and I feel very depressed and don't really know what to do.
I am considering seeing an immunologist for this has to do something with the immune system recognizing all these foods as hostile allergens.
I am eating just rice right now because I am afraid I will get allergic to other foods that I can still eat which happened to me each time when my condition was worse and I ate food I was supposedly able to eat.
please if you can direct me in any direction or recommend any remedies that might help me to get my system at least 50% back to what it was I would be the happiest guy on earth.
