Eczema Diet: Foods that Make Your Eczema Worse

Updated on August 13, 2008

Foods to Avoid if You Want Your Eczema Cured


Could it be that your diet is causing much of the misery you experience with eczema?

What if you could make simple changes to the way you eat and experience a great reduction in your eczema... would you be interested?

Well, it's true, the food you eat on a daily basis has a HUGE impact on your eczema. For better or worse. Some foods aggravate eczema and make it spread. Other foods reduce eczema and allow your skin to naturally heal itself.

Diet is a key to finding a cure to your eczema. You can put all the lotions and steroid creams you want on your eczema and you won't get any lasting results until you fix your diet.

With that said let's take a look at what foods you should avoid if you want your eczema to completely heal and never come back.

Wheat is at the top of the list for foods to avoid if you have eczema. Many people report huge improvements in their condition just by cutting out all forms of wheat. This can be difficult because wheat is such a common ingredient. But, if you follow through on reducing or eliminating wheat you'll soon see that it's worth it.

If you're having a hard time letting go of wheat (in baking, breads, etc.), try substituting brown rice flour, almond flour, coconut flour... There are so many other options available. In most health/natural food sections of your grocery store, you'll find many different types of breads that are completely wheat and gluten free. Some examples are spelt, brown rice, millet, and quinoa breads.

Another diet tip is to avoid processed foods. Prepackaged and fast foods are generally full of irritating and potentially dangerous ingredients and chemicals that make eczema much worse.

Also, they're hard for your body to digest because they lack enzymes and other important nutrients. Cutting out or reducing your intake of processed and fast foods will give your skin a chance to heal.

Avoiding wheat and processed foods is a great step in the right direction. You'll also want to add in the specific foods with the nutritional properties your body needs to start healing itself if you want a complete cure to your eczema.

And though diet is one of the main pillars in treating eczema, there are many other factors to reaching a total eczema cure in the quickest amount of time possible.

      processed food lacks enzymes so your body can't break it down? that sentence alone proves how ridiculous the entirety of the above passage is.

      the foods to watch out for are dairy product and oranges/orange juice.
