Then you need to see an allergist for testing to determine your specific food allergies. Hope this helps. ...Read more

See answer: It appears that you are either sensitive or allergic to some ingredient in the Clotrimazole cream causing a "contact dermatitis". Would recommend washing thoroughly with mild, neutral ph soap and apply an over the counter 1 or 2% Hydrocortisone cream or ointment 2-3x a day.

Itching is more consistent with allergy, and spicy food with blepharitis / rosacea. ...Read more
