Why did cutting out garlic, onion, and cinnamon miraculously relieve itchy skin rashes I've had for a year?

One day, I had incidentally removed these foods from my diet and had experienced a relief of itchy red skin on my hands and feet. These had always been part of my daily diet. Is it preposterous to think that the antimicrobial effects could have been killing yeast or other microbes and hence cause the rashes? Thanks!

I blame the site switch. It seems to be a magnet for a certain crowd.

Really? I was allergy tested at an allergy medical facility and onion or garlic were not positive. I was positive to barley, cod/fish mix, and green pepper

Bingo - allergies to any member of the allium family are as common as other food allergies.

Quoting Dr. Cordain from just 3 days ago:

"...garlic is a concentrated source of saponins which in most cases disrupt membrane function and can lead to a leaky gut."

My Gosh, what is Paleohacks coming to...

Did you used to consume them raw or boiled?

All three of them irritate your stomach lining. However, if you try consuming boiled onion, it should not have any impact on your stomach.

Both garlic and cinnamon are stomach irritants even if they are raw.

My guess is you are actually a vampire, and have had a garlic allergy this entire time.

Easy test, look in a mirror see anything? No?

I know when I consume large does of garlic my skin flares up a bit. I took it as an allergy and have avoid it for now. Drink some bone broth and heal your gut a bit more and you might find your allergies and reactions go away.

It would be interesting to add them back one at a time and see which one is the cause.

Honestly you could just have a food allergy to those. It's uncommon, but you can be allergic to anything, even beef *cry*
