How to determine what is triggering your flare-ups
Aside from avoiding the foods on this list, it helps to know if you have any food intolerances or sensitivities.
“Many people with eczema have underlying food intolerances, which means their immune systems produce antibodies to some foods,” Palmer-Wright shares. “By pinpointing and eliminating the foods which cause an immune reaction, drive inflammation and trigger eczema flare-ups, it may be possible to reduce the inflammation, redness and itching and help prevent future eczema outbreaks.”
If you are struggling with eczema, Palmer-Wright suggests taking a look at your diet and asking yourself “what is causing my body to be inflamed?”
“Identifying food sensitivities on your own can be challenging but it’s important that if you do suspect your diet is playing a role, not to try wide-ranging elimination diets on your own,” Palmer-Wright adds.
Not sure where to start? A food intolerance expert or nutritionist can test you to help you get to the root of which foods are triggering your eczema.
