We are in the midst of an elimination diet based in IGG testing a few weeks ago (no dairy, wheat, eggs, peanuts, or spelt) and my daughter's eczema initially cleared up really nicely after only 2 days.  It has been coming and going now for the past week, and according to the food/symptoms log I am keep for her, it seems to be flaring up after eating citrus fruits, apples, and berries.  It is strange, because no fruits showed up as reactive on the results.  I have read some about citric acid intolerance and one list I came across said "no soft fruits." Do any of you have a more specific list, a good resource I can check out, or any experience with this in yourselves or your kids?  I am getting nowhere with general Google searches and haven't ever heard of this before.
