Hi Panda -
Sherry is so right! I acquired allergies to sunflower seeds and sulfites, from feeding birds and eating processed foods. My allergist had me keep a food log/diary, which helped me figure out which foods triggered my reactions, which were reflux and tachycardia.
I also had skin problems, dryness and itching. The allergist said to pat not quite dry and apply a light, non-perfumed oil or hypoallergenic lotion before I even got out of the shower to keep as much moisture as possible.
If you think you might be having a problem with bread or wheat, watch that your choice of lotions doesn't contain this either. Wheat can cause an allergy later in life just like other allergens can.
