Yes, there is a (technical) difference between a sensitivity, an intolerance and an allergy. An allergy can be VERY bad and even fatal for some who have a real, actual (technical) allergy. Most true allergic reactions are from tree nuts, peanuts and seafood (mostly shellfish). Intolerances and sensitivities can happen with other foods and or environmentally caused exposure.

Blackandi, sounds like an intolerance to me but you should probably consult a professional. Do you break out when you eat any of the other foods in the nightshade kingdom (potatoes, peppers, eggplant)? An intolerance can be healed by finding out what enzyme you are missing or maybe just by taking a GOOD digestive enzyme supplement. If it's something else, well, the professional will be able to help you sort it out.
It's possible you have an overgrowth of candida as many of us do. We frequently get it from having eaten too many industrialized foods and not enough raw, fresh foods and also from taking antibiotics.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I used to use a tomato, yogurt, glycerin concoction to get rid of acne and it worked so well!
I would HATE to be allergic to tomatoes, they are one of my favorite foods. emoticon

I'm sorry - but it would be great if you can figure out the source of your problem.

May I commiserate? It appears I can't eat wheat due to a 'sensitivity' (still trying to figure out what that ACTUALLY means) :o(

Never mind about the bread, pasta, cookies stuff - that was just occasional treats anyways. I miss pita bread. And regular granola. And falafals. And tabbouleh...

you get the idea.

I noticed tomatoes may be the reason for my acne breakouts. I hadn't eaten them in weeks and my face was clearing up and I started back eating them three days ago and the day after the first day...break outs! I am going to experiment a little more by not eating them for a while and then try again. But this is very sad because I love tomatoes!!!!

Anyway...that's all I wanted to say today about this.
