Skin symptoms possibly related to food?

Hi all
I’ve been trying to tease out what’s going on. Apparently I have rosacea and contact dermatitis however, I get these marks on my nails that precipitate a skin flare up...
they’re not mees lines or muehrcks lines
I asked my derm and she said it’s normal— but they’re not.
I can’t tell if it’s a reaction to food or a deficiency?
It always starts on my pinky and then goes to all of them.
The best way I can describe it is like a ghost band. It starts right at the tip of the nail and starts turning white spreading to my cuticle— my nails break and split then my skin breaks out.
Just wondering if anyone has ever noticed this or had something similar.
I tried taking vitamins (not taking vitamins)— it’s been going on for years but can’t find the common denominator
Any advice is helpful— thank you!!

There are home food sensitivity tests you can try if you haven't done anything about this. I know it has been a long while since you posted this but this might be helpful to you if you haven't followed up on it (if you are like me, I procrastinate).  https://www.healthline.com/health/food-sensitivity-test
