Kris A Posted April 2, 2016 Share Posted April 2, 2016 Hello! I'm hoping to find some suggestions/wisdom for a surprising eczema occurrence in the midst of my whole30. On Day 18 of my whole30 I developed an eczema flare-up near my mouth and on my hand. I’ve had eczema like this in the past, but hadn’t had an occurrence in over a year and it was never this bad (in the past it was only on my forehead). I was surprised to see it pop up in the midst of the whole30 and am baffled as to why it occurred now, seemingly out of nowhere when I hadn’t had an occurrence in so long. I have 2 main theories, and am interested in any other ideas/input. 1. Is this some sort of die-off / adjustment period from now being completely grain free? (I rarely had dairy anyway coming into this so I don’t think its from removal of dairy) 2. Am I reacting from an approved whole30 food that I’m actually sensitive to? For example, I’ve always eaten eggs and nuts, but now I’m eating them more often, could the increase in these foods be triggering my eczema? Any advice as to what may be the issue here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
