Im hyper allergic to almost everything. recently developed rash on face, it turns to staff after a while. it feels like a million creatures crawling under my skin. the sores constantly weep and It itches so bad that I actually wake up in the middle of the night scratching my face. been to see countless doctors, they cant help, dont know what it is. Sunburn seems to soothe it for a couple of days, but the itching returns soon after. what is it?

Dear Chantal
I am sorry to hear about this troublesome condition. As I am the Diet Expert, I would recommend that you consult a Dermatologist for the correct treatment. If you are also allergic to foods, then please do consult a clinical dietitian (check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area.). The dietitian will work out a diet for you that avoids all the offending foods and still provides you with the nutrients you require for good health.
Hoping you get to the bottom of this problem.
