Just wanted to provide a little further update:
It's been a little over a mon
th since my last post above. In that time I have had some go
od luck and some bad luck, but have learned quite a bit.
First, I have narrowed down the root cause of the red
bumps around my eyes. It's clearly related to a reaction
to food (in my case, it seems to be mainly anything having to do with milk). It also seems to relate to sugar and/or coffee.
