In brief: See an allergist

A better use of your money would be to see an allergist or a dermatologist.

In brief: Yes

You may be deficient in zinc, gla, ala, or dha and epa.
This can be tested for with a serum zinc level (do with serum copper), and a comprehensive free fatty acid panel. Both zinc and copper should be within normal ranges but we want zinc to be slightly higher than copper.
