Rash from dairy & Egg intolerance

In a blog post before I mentioned that I wanted to do some food eliminations because of the way I was feeling. But I tried it for a few days and it was darn hard.
But this time I'm far more motivated.
Here's why:

These are pictures I've just taken of my legs, the red rash and skin irritation is very sore and is getting worse. I used to have these kind of rashes when eating wheat and when I stopped eating it I got so much better. But now I'm eating fat more day than I used to because of my high fat low carb approach, and as a result I think it has highlighted a dairy allergy.

I don't know for sure that its a dairy / egg allergy, but I'm going to have to eliminate it for a few weeks and see if I'm any better.
I've clarified some butter, which has ruined part of the taste, but it removes the lactose and casein particles.
Hopefully it might even lessen some of the headaches that I suffer as well. We'll have to see.

But giving up dairy is tough! Not to have cheese smothered on everything, my glenisk Greek style full fat yogurt and milk in my decaff coffee is hard. But I've got to a point where I'm going to have to try...
