Food Allergy Flushing

Many people with acne also have food allergies. A food allergy can cause redness, flushing, itching and fluid-filled pustules to appear on the skin. Food allergies can also cause itching, tearing and a discharge from the eyes. Please consider 'food allergy testing' from your Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) doctor to confirm which foods you are allergic to as you may not be familiar with them. Some of the worst items are cantaloupes and various melons as well as beef, pork, and chicken while fish very rarely causes a flushing problem. Asthma and eczema may be triggered or worsened by food allergies.
