    Default not sure if it applies...

    A few days ago I ate two slices of bread with penutbutter, and about 10 mins after, I was very itchy. On my face, my legs.. my ribs. ( I hate eaten peanutbutter before so it didnt make sense)

    Which is why i am not sure if it applies here. However I have never really like nuts of any kind, and apparently I have a family member the is allergic to peanuts.... so i dont know.

    That's a good indicator of food allergies and seborrheic dermatitis. For example, vinegar is one of the worst things you can consume if you have seb derm. If I go to say, Jack In The Box and get me a caesar salad with the caesar dressing, it has quite a bit of vinegar in it and as son as I eat it my seb derm affected area starts to itch. Which is not a good thing.

    My seb derm turns itchy and my forehead breaks out horribly if I even smell peanuts let alone eat them or any kind of nut. Same goes for chocolate, caramel and even licorice.
    It took me a while to figure this out, because sometimes...if the exposure is mild...I won't break out until three days following exposure. This sounds ridiculous, I know, but the pattern has been repeated over and over throughout the past 12 years since I discovered it.
    I suspect that foods also make me get the itchy spots from my Rosacea, but haven't nailed anything yet.
