Unusual: Your history is interesting in that the symptoms don't appear until a day after the exposure when most food allergy symptoms occur within 2 hours after the exposure. Regardless of the mechanism, if you have problem from eating certain foods, avoidance is the best solution.

Food allergy: This could be a food allergy,or not.Try avoiding the suspected foods for 24 hours or more and see what happens?Blood tests are available to test for common food allergies.No point in continuing with allergex.You need an answer. Good luck
