Our expert says:
While you may be allergic to sodium chloride, I suspect that you are probably allergic to iodine which is added to all table salt in SA to prevent goitre. Iodine allergy could account for your skin rash. You seem to be able to do well without excessive salt intakes, but if you find that this allergy recurs every time you eat salty foods, then ask at your health shop if they have non-iodised salt available which you can try out. If you don't react to non-iodised salt then you will need to avoid iodine in all its forms.
