after being insanly itchy for 3 years and taking reactin everyday, my allergist is finally confident I am allergic to sulphates!
Before last week I have never even heard of this,and as I try to find any and all info out I am realising that its not all that easy!
I have been keeping a food journal and am being extremly careful and yet I am still finding myself itchy! I am frustrated! I am not supposed to take Reactin while I am trying to find ut what works and what dosnt, but I am having to at least take Benadryl because Its driving me NUTS!!!!!
With all that said this is only day 3, so does it take more time to get out of my system? I know forsure I had a reaction to coffee yesturday. So how long should that last? I am REALLY itchy all day today. Or did I eat something else that isnt working for me?
Yesturday I ate:
Oatmeal with milk and a banana
organic coffee w/ milk and honey (itchy 20 min later but seemed to get a bit better)
small peice of pork and ww pasta with fresh spinach and fresh garlic
Tea (red rose) w/honey
natural peanut butter and a piece of marble cheese
stuffed peppers with ground beef, onion, celery, brown rice, and carrots. I also put some pure V8 juice in with this
Loose tea (this did have orange peel in it)
same loose tea
honey on a light rye wasa cracker
Tea(tetley) with honey
I am super itchy today and frustrated! I am following the plan my Dr. gave me, unless im missing something here???
Also If any of you suffer from this, what do you eat? I need meal/snack ideas...
I would GREATLY appretiate any and all feed back I can get.
