Coming out in hot red rash when i eat
Hi just wanted to get an idea what could be going on. The past month i have had a fairly strict diet (mainly fruit veg nuts, natural foods etc). Now in the past week twice, immediately after eating i have come out in a massive red hot rash mainly on my face but also down my neck and back. The two common foods in these meals were curry powder and garlic granules. Am i over eating a food source and am i treating my body badly?
thanks for any help in advance.

Dear Reader
You may have developed an allergy or food sensitivity to one of the foods you are eating - a fruit or group of fruits, the nuts, or one of the spices in curry powder. The only way to determine for sure which class of foods you are reacting to, is to ask your dr to send you for allergy tests. Once you have a diagnosis we can look at which foods you need to avoid.
