To prevent eczema symptoms, you may want to consider a wheat free diet. Atopic eczema is said to be commonly linked to food allergies. One of the most common food allergies that many suffer from is a wheat allergy. You may find it cumbersome to have a wheat allergy as many products contain wheat nowadays. It is a popular ingredient with food manufacturers as a cheap substitute for a lot of more expensive substances.

If your eczema is full blown or if you get frequent attacks, then it is in your interest to find out if you have a wheat allergy. Once you determine if this is the case, go on a wheat free diet to prevent eczema symptoms. A wheat free diet is going to make you feel better. If you have a wheat allergy, then it will be the case that you cannot wheat at all. Consult a nutritionist to find out how to read food labels for problem substances. Many ingredients are wheat related. So you need to be sure what the various ingredients are, in order for you to count the food as wheat-free.

It is possible that instead of a food allergy, you may simply have mild wheat intolerance. In fact, many people are said to eat so much wheat that their bodies start to reject it a bit. A wheat intolerance is the result. If you sometimes experience dizziness, nausea, or sneeze for no real reason or find yourself getting unexplained aches and pains, then your body might be rejecting wheat slightly. You may not realise this and dismiss this as merely having a normal reaction. If you are wheat intolerant, though, a wheat-free diet can help you to reduce your eczema symptoms by simply cutting down the consumption of such foods.

Some new studies are also indicating that there might be a direct link between wheat and dyslexia, and possibly other medical conditions. In studies, children with dyslexia, after going on a wheat-free diet, paid better attention in school suddenly and, in general, became more alert. They are able to process information better and consequently scored better in tests than before.

Other symptoms of a wheat allergy or intolerance include cramping, bloating, irritable bowel, unexplained cold-like symptoms or headaches. If you really do find yourself having these reactions, then it is best that you consult your doctor. A wheat free diet may sound extremely tedious to implement, but it may be worth the trouble if it means that you can prevent eczema symptoms from ever developing again.
