Dried Apricots= Rash and cysts

Well I had my skin all cleared up just in time for me to return to college. Well I bought some dried apricots to eat as a snack during the day. I ate some on monday and didnt notice anything bad. Tuesday I woke up with eczema type rashes on my elbows so i moistrized and they didnt seems to itch as much. Again on tuesday i ate some apricots and again, nothing unusual. Today I woke up with a rash all over my body :wall: . My face has three big red cysts. my elbows are a big patch of itchy skin. my entire body is covered in a rash. i look like a freak! This is the only thing that ahs changed in my diet, and i havent used any new soaps, detergents or anything! This sucks, at least i know to stay away from those tastey little things. oh, and i bought the natural ones w/ no additives so its nothing like that. wish i coulda found this out before returning to school. all my hard work, gone.

I use to work at a factory that processed apricots. They are full of bacteria. Most are not tested for levels either.

Dried fruits are high in sugar and carbohydrates, so will break out many people, including myself.

Its probably not the apriocots. Apricots are high in antioxidants. It could be the winter weather. I also break out in rashes during the winter months
