Skin Rashes and Eczema Symptoms
Skin Rashes and Eczema Symptoms. Is there a relationship between Skin Rashes, Eczema and Food Intolerance?
Yes, although your eczema is not always necessarily caused by an allergy or food intolerance. If you have suffered badly with eczema and skin rashes but have not identified what is causing these issues, then you may have a food intolerance or allergy.
Food Intolerances and allergies are a lot more common than most people realise, as there are many people around the world and in the UK not knowing that they are living with an allergy or food intolerance. Once you have identified your intolerances and allergies, however, there are ways to manage it, and if you successfully avoid the offending food item, your skin rashes and eczema may disappear.
Different types of Skin Rashes
One of the more common skin rashes is Hives. It usually starts as a patch of itchy skin which develops into swollen red or skin-coloured bumps and can be increasingly uncomfortable, as well as uncomfortable to look at for many. A problem for many people with hives is that they can appear anywhere on the body, meaning you can not necessarily prepare for an outbreak, unless they are caused by an allergy or food intolerance, meaning they can move around the body.
If you do have a food intolerance or allergy, then Hives can be triggered by a particular food item or other environmental factors. We cannot emphasise enough how important it is to understand the cause of hives, particularly if they are long-term and repeated.
Eczema is widely known around the world for how it appears, but it is not always clear what causes this skin condition. It is a non-contagious chronic inflammatory skin condition, but it can be hereditary. It is not necessarily caused by food intolerance, but if you cannot identify the cause, you should consider that it may be a food intolerance.
It is often hereditary and very common in children, although children can often grow out of it. However, it is important to note that not every child will outgrow eczema, and your dry and sensitive skin can become inflamed with red itchy patches which can often be a great nuisance to others. If the surface is irritated and often scratched due to its itchiness, then the skin break, and in the worst-case scenario, it could cause an infection.

If you suspect you have a food intolerance or are suffering from a food-related allergy, then you’ll want to understand how it is caused, what it’s doing to your body and whether your symptoms are related to an allergy or intolerance.
There are some symptoms that are very common to food allergies and/or intolerances, and some which can be a sign of many different conditions — making it all the more important to truly identify the root cause or causes.
