Re: tried everything nothing is working, need advice!!

I see you are allergic to milk , so I suspect you are sensible enough not to use the goatmilk soaps for your skin! as for flare ups, stress can do it,( I get christmas eczema for example!) as well as winter, due to heating drying out the skin. Have you been tested for environmental allergies as well...

Re: Allergy anxiety and paranoia?

YES. This is a normal reaction to a very real fear.

allergies are very complicated, you may have a high threshold to one nut you are allergic to, but really its more to do with the differing protein structures. and you may be allergic to more than one nut. threshold depends on the day you eat it, how well you are at the time, and of course the amount...
