Why After Eating The Skin On The Outer Chest Sometimes Feels Sore?
I want to ask, how come sometimes after I eat, sometimes the pain in the chest is on the outside of the skin, but it doesn’t feel as painful as it hurts, right?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all you should explain further, what foods make you feel sore in the skin of your chest and whether there are certain lesions on your skin (for example there are spots, bumps, rashes, cuts, or other lesions).
If indeed you experience pain in the skin of your chest just every time you eat it, then the possible cause is that you consume certain foods that cause allergies to the skin, or your skin experiences a reddish and burning sensation (or called skin flushing) that may occur due to consumption foods that are too spicy, hot, or because of alcohol consumption. Some food additives can also cause skin flushing, for example MSG (food flavoring), sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate (for example those found in processed meat, marinated seafood), sulphite (for example those found in vegetables and other frozen foods, fruit juices) , etc).
Another possible cause of pain in your skin that may actually not be related to your mealtime or the food you eat for example, herpes zoster infection, rosacea, trauma / injury to the skin, contact dermatitis, etc.
You can try to pay further attention, whenever the pain on your skin occurs and whether there are certain foods that trigger the emergence of pain. If indeed the appearance of pain in the skin associated with consumption of certain foods, you can try to avoid these foods. To be able to find out the cause with certainty, it helps you check yourself directly to the doctor. Your doctor can examine the condition of your chest skin and take a deeper history about your symptoms.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
