Food additives may cause hives

Question : I have been suffering from a skin allergy for the past eight months. It started like mosquito bites and then grew into huge red swollen patches that are itchy and warm to the touch.

Answer : You may be suffering from hives or urticaria. Hives is an allergic reaction that coincides with a release of histamine in the body. Hives are a series of raised red skin welts, ranging upwards from 5mm in diameter. They itch severely, or may even burn or sting. Some common allergic triggers are certain foods, medications as well as insect stings and bites.

Common food that cause hives are nuts, seafood, tomatoes, eggs and milk. Fresh food additives and preservatives may also cause hives. Opt for a diet free of additives, caffeine and processed food.

Essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) may help relieve the signs and co-existing symptoms of hives.

Take milk thistle and dandelion as it cleanses the liver of dangerous toxins that may trigger an allergy.

Avoid harsh soaps, frequent bathing and vigorous wiping after a bath to reduce the problem of dry skin.

Drink plenty of water.
