Foods often play an important role in causing, at least, two types of skin problems- hives and eczemas. Although, there are several types of eczemas which are not caused due to food allergies, 'atopic eczema' is frequently its resultant. Certain food scuffs, such as milk, eggs and preserved foods are most likely to cause allergies. A person may also be allergic to more than one food stuff. Often a number of hours elapse before the reaction occurs; so it is quite a problem to identify the culprit. Luckily, most people outgrow their food allergies and it is really not always necessary to look very carefully for the causative agent.

I get certain foods react with my eczema- though the main thing that affects it is worry and stress- always my wrists itch and I then realise I am stressed and need to change things.

I get spots if I cut back on fresh fruit and vegetables, which is fine by me as I like to eat fresh fruit and vegetables, but I do eat alot (like more then 10 portions a day of fruit alone- probably the same if not more with vegetables :/ ) Its good that it makes such a difference to my skin, and lucky I love eating the stuff so much, but my bank balance has seen better days!

Any processed foods such as fried foods make my skin look dead and dull- it loses is brightness, any carbohydrates beyond a certain point make my face puffy and my skin looks puffy and odd as a result.
