Itch, treatment, healthcare system
Introduced a new spice to my diet. "Italian herbs" - Delicious but It made me itch. Could it be the basil maybe? Anybody else using the herb in your food?

I have my own herb garden. I add herbs to all my foods, soups, stews, scrambled eggs, .. they are highly alkaline and such a super food. I have written a blog on herbs and psoriasis.
My favorites; parsley, Italian parsley, mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, celery, marjoram, sage. I pick a little of everything, chop it finely and add it to everything I can.
My psoriasis is now non existent.. so herbs are not causing me any flare ups..

Every day, I have fresh garlic, ginger and beetroot amongst other herbs!

I love Italian Herb spice...use it in all my savoury dishes .....

Thank you all. hm...it must be something else I guess. I've never been a fan of basil but I did not eat anything else that can give me an itch. I had some sweet yellow pepper but I'm good with that. Will make the dish again and check carefully what caused the itch. :)

I regularly use a mixture of herbs from the garden, would not be without them, they add lots of flavour.

I don't think basil is considered an inflammatory food in what I have read and followed with my elimination diet. You should be fine with that Michelle. Much more likely to be the peppers...or something else of course!

As My country is across from Italy, we also use the same herbs as them and they are phenomenal.
In My garden I have few bushes of ordinary mint, citrus mint, ordinary basil, Greek basil, thyme and origano.
Nothing beats a good old tomato soup with some small pasta and fresh basil ;)

Hm...could be the peppers again. I've been okay with it but now it seems I can only have them once every second month. But its okay, I will cut it out for the next two months. Thank you Sarah. P4G I LOVE tomato soup with those small pasta. But haven't had it in years actually. :)
