Skin inflammation such as rashes, hives, and eczema can be annoying, and in some cases can result in destruction of the skin by forming scars. Common knowledge is that these conditions are caused by allergies to pollen, dander, some metals and other products as well. However, what most people fail to realize is that food intolerance may also have a role to play in causing these skin conditions.
What Are Skin Rashes/Hives/Eczema?
Skin rashes are tiny bumps that occur on the skin. They can occur on any part of the skin depending on the cause of the rash. For instance, in babies, diaper rashes occur on the skin covered by the diaper.
Also able to occur on any part of the body, hives are categorized as an outbreak of pale red bumps that can occur suddenly. They usually cause itching, and can sting and burn in severe cases.
Eczema is a skin condition in which patches of the skin become inflamed that is accompanied with itching, redness, crusting, and more. It is most often used to refer to the medical condition of atopic dermatitis.
Skin Rashes/Hives/Eczema and Food Intolerance
A food intolerance produces an inflammation that spreads to other parts of the body through the blood and lymphatic system. The reaction causes the sebaceous glands to swell and redden due to the inflammation. Food intolerance can cause this by inducing an immune reaction in the gut, which will then spread to other parts of the body. The skin then reacts by forming rashes, eczema or hives. This is why food intolerance should never be ruled out as a cause of these skin conditions.
Symptoms of Skin Rashes/Hives/Eczema
Skin rashes can manifest with one or more of the following symptoms:
- Skin redness
- Formation of fluid-filled blisters
- Dry, scaly skin
Health Risks of Skin Rashes/Hives/Eczema
Longstanding rashes can pose a number of health risks including:
- Thyroid disease
- Spreading of the inflammation to involve larger areas of skin
- Loss of self-esteem and depression if they involve the face
- Cancer in rare cases
