Food Allergy

Hello All,
I recently had a severe allergic reaction and was almost about to pass out, i took 2 benadryl tablets and I was lucky that my symptoms were under control within 2 hours. I went to see an Allergy doctor and he said he can't pin point what i am allergic too. I want to get to the root cause of this problem so my question is would it help going to an infectious disease doctor who can do further testing and see if there is any autoimmune disease going on that's causing this to happen? Has… read more

Anyone have airborne food allergy reactions?

Anyone have airborne food allergy reactions?

My food allergy to Wheat is airborne and ingestion (anaphylactic responses with severe asthma). It is problematic for me to go many places including work. Anyone else have similar issues/reactions and how are you approaching treatment? Any successful tips to navigate this? I’ve been dealing with over a year now, but my asthma is getting worse. I just started an injectable to control the asthma allergic reactions but it takes a year to see real results.

I am diagnosed with tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, wheat, corn, soy and egg white allergies. None of them showed up on my skin testing but do with the blood testing IGE response.

Multiple allergies and problems using epi-pen

I have already had to stop eating melons, squash, pumpkin, because of a cross-contamination. I'm allergic to artificial colorings, latex, aspirin, bananas. My diet is limited.

Does anyone have a reaction to the food that causes a reaction hours after ingesting the particular food?

Does anyone have a reaction to the food that causes a reaction hours after ingesting the particular food?

I have a severe tree nut allergy, and I tried the challenge approach in the allergist's office. After 5 hours I ingested one whole almond, but because I did not show any symptoms in the office he told me I could eat almonds (ha, ha). I didn't have a reaction until 2 hours later. My tongue began swelling. Needless to say, I stay away from all tree nuts!
