Okay, just found out I have an allergy to CORN. This is a nightmare. Corn is in everything, including most sensitive skin care products (no wonder I'm having a hard time finding any products for my sensitive skin!). It doesn't say corn on the label, it's all these other corn derivatives like glycerin xanthan gum, decyl glucoside etc..
Well, what happened was I had some skin testing done on my back and I tested positive to oats (OF ALL THINGS, SOMETHING SOOTHING FOR PEOPLE WITH ROSACEA) and clams. Well a few weeks after this, my Allergy Dr. decided to do a patch test with milk powder, wheat flour, oats, and cornmeal. Wore it for 3 days and on day 3 low and behold I had serious blisters with the corn.
Corn is also in medications. So many people in this forum talk about how they take a supplement and it seems to make their rosacea worse or they flush with it. Well that was me. It is in aspirin, vitamins, prescription medications. My Allergy Dr. thinks this is contributing to my flushing. I just had my clondine compounded by a pharmacist corn free.
Just wanted to pass this along. Maybe it could help someone else.... Oh and I joined Delphi Forums Corn Avoiders and met some other people online who also have a corn allergy who were diagnosed with rosacea. They stated when they cut corn and corn derivatives out of their diet, their rosacea improved. I just don't get my hopes up these days anymore.
