Stay Young America!

Jul 23, 2021

Did you know your dry skin could be from something you’re eating? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young America Medical Minute. People don’t usually think food allergies when it comes to skin irritations. Unfortunately, they can go through life with dry skin or pesky itching and figure that’s just a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be. Common foods like dairy, corn, wheat, or nuts could be the culprit. Food allergies don’t always cause the fatal reactions that we most commonly associate an allergy with. Chronic exposure to foods you are allergic to or sensitive to can cause long term inflammation. While there are tests for food allergies, you can also try simply eliminating things from your diet. Take food items out one at a time, but be sure to read labels so you aren’t getting trace amounts. Then reintroduce them slowly, one by one. Eventually, you may just find your answer and get relief from those skin issues. This Stay Young America! Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
