Hair loss : It is unlikely that food allergies have anything to do with your hair loss and flaky scalp. A variety of conditions might be associated with hair loss like male pattern baldness (androgenic), fungal infection, syphillus, medications side effects, autoimmune disease, pituitary insufficiency and thyroid dysfunction... You need to talk to a physician.
