Supplements (for food allergy itching / rosacea)

What supplements or other treatment may be beneficial for skin that becomes itchy from food allergies, and also for helping rosacea?

Hi there,
Great question.

The jury is a little out on this.
For itchy skin, if you mean eczema - fish oils may help. For food allergies, just avoiding the triggers is the best treatment.
For rosacea - no clear evidence. probiotics might be helpful.
