figuring stuff out

So, I am still trying to figure out what's behind this latest round of food sensitivities. I just ended my 9 days without eggs and 7 days without dairy or corn. None of this seemed to improve the recent breakouts on my face (covering my whole face, been going on for several weeks now). I'm starting to wonder if it might be a reaction to sufites -- I've seen some threads on this site mentioning it, and it could explain why I seem to be reacting to foods that don't necessarily group neatly into categories like dairy, corn, soy, etc. I'm pretty sure I've had reactions to vinegar (balsamic and white wine), red wine, Enjoy life bars with dried fruit in them, hard-boiled eggs and homemade gluten-free baked goods that contain eggs.

The main thing is the little acne-like bumps all over my face, but I also have a kind of oral allergic response reaction and my face feels kind of tight and itchy and sometimes my face and ears get red/hot. But it's not hives or extreme symptoms like those I get with my walnut allergy. It could be worse, but I'll be glad to figure this out! It's gonna be a challenge, but I think I'll try eliminating sulfites this next week and see if that does any better. (Already excluding nightshades, tree nuts, and raw celery -- and gluten, of course.)
