Here's an article which has helped me quite a bit. Am suffering from allergies..:-(

The term sugar sensitivity is a catch-all phrase for a number of medical situations. This sensitivity might be a food allergy or a physical reaction to increased blood sugar levels. If eating refined sugar products causes your skin to itch, the most likely scenario is an allergic reaction. Refined sugar may also be a trigger for a chronic skin conditions, such as eczema. Only your doctor can properly diagnose your situation and determine the basis for your sugar sensitivity and resulting itchy skin.

Food Allergy

A food allergy is an abnormal reaction by the immune system to a food. When some substances enter or come in contact with the body, the immune system erroneously detects harm. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, true food allergies are not that common. What some people deem to be an allergy may actually be an intolerant to a food. Intolerance is not an immune system response. It is a difficulty digesting or processing a food type, such a sugar. Symptoms of a true food allergy include hives, swelling, itching skin or a skin rash. Some food allergies may trigger chronic skin conditions like eczema.
