My itch scale

This is my visual scale of itching intensity and some of the foods that trigger my itch, with beer being the quickest, most virulent itch trigger food and butternut squash being the most benign food I could eat. It’s how I gauge my reactions to food.

Very rarely will I eat in the red. But a good pizza or pasta dish will usually tempt me into an after dinner itch! Sometimes it starts even before dinner is over.

If I am going to eat in the high end of the scale, I usually take a quercetin before dinner. Sometimes I take an Olive Leaf capsule. (I am still trying to determine which one works better.) But if I am out socializing and I want it, I will usually go ahead and eat it. It’s a choice, and sometimes I choose to eat what I want and itch later!
