Well thank you ...I have finally been able to put a name to the itch I developed late in 2001, although I am not a big eater of chips or what seem to be the main culprits, I still suffered for over 7 months with the rash, nothing would seem to stop the rash. I removed all processed foods from my diet and after about 2 months the rash disappeared. Although I never knew what caused it, so began to eat normally again and in the last 2 months I have developed the rash again, so now I know what it is I can adjust my diet . (My diet) contained Devondale (blended) butter, I used that quite a lot but since the rash I have been using Nuttelex, I will definitely be more vigilant with my buying of foods – Jayne by email.
