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.

Jessica, I totally understand where you are coming from. I don't have the asthma portion, but breathing gluten makes me sick. Earlier this year, my store was being remodeled. We were moved to a kiosk during construction. Our kiosk was located just feet away from a fresh-baked pretzel kiosk. I had to figure out a solution, or I was going to be out of work for a few months. The solution I found is a little odd. Before my shift, I would take a charcoal capsule and a GlutenEase capsule. I would keep a large bottle of water with me to drink throughout the day. If I noticed the symptoms of gluten exposure, I would take another GlutenEase. I think I ended up taking a capsule 1 every 2 hours to keep the symptoms at bay. I didn't get the rash, I had minor headaches, and my stomach pains stopped. I hope this helps.

Unfortunately, I had to quit a job because of airborne allergens. I so hope the charcoal worked for you!
