Dough has eggs: Most cookie dough contains raw eggs. Check the ingredient list. If you have a severe egg allergy, even a tiny amount could be dangerous. Many people do not realize that even a smidgeon of their trigger food has thousands of antigen molecules in it. There are egg-free recipes for cookies but you have to seek them out. www.food.com/recipes/egg-free.

No eggs from ticks: Ticks take a blood meal (yes, that is gross, but true!). They do not lay eggs under the skin as some other insects and mites do. They transmit disease by passing it to the animals (us) on whom they feed.

Depends on eggs: Most women feel fine the next day, but there is some variability in this. Returning to normal depends on the stimulation. High egg yields can lead to hyperstimulation, which can last for ten days, or longer if pregnancy occurs.
