someone posted earlier about Nickel in foods possibly causing EC (for some people that is)
I remember I posted about how I got EC, and it makes total sense. When I was a kid it was already established that I had a Nickel allergy, because it caused my eczema it irritated my skin. The thing is, I remember back 6-7 years ago, the foods that were abundant with nickel, I ate all the time. I remember I would get soy sauce on my lips and my lips would burn and get extremely itchy, now when I eat food with soy sauce I get mild irritation, its as if the EC is making my lips less irritated by nickel foods. Also, 2 other foods with nickel : chocolate and bananas, whenever I eat them my mouth gets dry and my throat tightens/gets itchy forcing me to cough. Another reason why I believe nickel allergy caused my EC was because around 6-7 years ago, my mom bought me lots and lots of chocolate, prior to the time period I had little bits of chocolate, but my chocolate intake and soy-product intake severely elevated during that time, which is when I remember my EC slowly shaping. Just 1-2 years ago my EC got the point where it looked like Daniels (at his worst). 3-4 years ago I remember my lips constantly looking chapped and having mild peeling (nothing too serious).
Anyways, the point in this post is for me to propose a question.
Should I try a Nickel diet? Will it work? Is it worth giving up the things I love, soy sauce (soy products), chocolate, bananas, etc.... just to get rid of EC? How long would it take? Would it work for everyone?
