Allergins: You have to read the labels on the products and look for the allergins...The top ones are:
tree nuts (such as almonds, cashews, walnuts)
fish (such as bass, cod, flounder)
shellfish (such as crab, lobster, shrimp)

Elimination diet: Try an elimination diet. You'll remove suspected allergens like wheat or dairy for a week, if symptoms improve, try reintroducing them one at a time in 2-3 day intervals. If you react negatively to a food, you may have a sensitivity to that food type. You can also see a provider for "rast" blood testing.
