First of all, thank you Michael, for the effort you have put in into the research.
My skin has been getting quite dry and flaky occasionally. And since it has been happening on and off, the stimulanse must be coming from something environmental. I researched my symptoms and it correlates mostly with seborrheic dermatitis.
I noticed that the symptoms’ timing roughly corresponds with me eating eggs. I tried going egg-free for three days, but I realized that many of the things I’m eating have eggs in them, and that has slowed down the process of finding out the truth. In the following three days, I’ll be more strict about what I eat so I can avoid eggs completely.
However, I had four eggs today to check if that would make things worse, lo and behold, 2 hours after that, my mustache area started itching, and I got red and flaky skin on the left side of my mustache and on the sides of my nose. I’m now 70% sure that the problem is in eggs.
Since it takes my skin one day to clear up by 50%, and two days to clear up by 85%, I should be certain about eggs in two to three. After that, I’ll report back to you whether eggs are the sure cause of my seborrheic dermatitis or not.
I know there might be some other causes for these symptoms, and that’s why I’ll keep my diet the same for the period of the test. I’ll be having the following:
Bulletproof coffee, sardines with salad, and chicken or beef with vegetables.
I both hope that eggs will be the problem so I can settle this for good, but I also hope they are not so I wouldn’t miss a staple in my diet.
I hope the best for everyone.
