    Default Diet and Eczema

    I have found that acidic foods affect my eczema and make it worse. When I cut down on the tomatoes and the pineapple, I get less breakouts.

    Also, soda makes my eczema worse. The sugar and the carbonation break me out.

    When I am broken out, sugar and dairy make my eczema worse.

    Has anyone else found this to be true? What foods make your eczema worse?

    I think the food we eat, has a lot to do with your immune system, so I think your diet important.

    I think a lot of the foods in your diet could be taking away from your immune system and it's natural healing ability, so that would have a direct affect on your eczema.

    Here is a site that I found that goes into detail about how your diet would and could affect your eczema.

    Thanks for the link! I will be checking it out. Even with all the information I already have, I still cannot manage to get my eczema under control without using steroids. I really don't want to have to keep coming back to steroids!

    For me, eggs, chicken, mangoes, eggplant, and peanuts make my eczema worse. I can eat these in moderation, but if i have say chicken for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I will start to itch at night. I've been intending to have the skin allergy test but I keep putting it off because it looks painful and boring...

    Well, we researched online and paid 29.99 for a book that is supposed to help me beat the eczema. It seems to mostly be about diet. Come to find out, everything I like to eat and have in my cupboards are all things that affect my eczema. Anyone else heard of this book? If so, did it work for you?
