I have a barley allergy confirmed with a blood test. Was tested for wheat, rye. Is it common for barley allergy to "standalone" or similar substances?

I have a barley allergy confirmed with a blood test. Was tested for wheat, rye. Is it common for barley allergy to "standalone" or similar substances?

Barley allergy: Yes barley allergy alone is actually very common. I usually see 6-7 people a year with this allergy. Usually it causes itching alone (which can lead to eczema), recurrent urticaria ( hives) and/or intestinal cramping with diarrhea. The hard part with avoidance is that many brands of flour are a wheat/ barley mix. So this calls for a lot of label reading and avoidance of things made with flour ...Read more

Do food allergies cause long term damage? Newly diagnosed: tomato, barley, tree nuts, coconut. Mild positives: wheat, soy, peanut, egg. How to manage?

Do food allergies cause long term damage? Newly diagnosed: tomato, barley, tree nuts, coconut. Mild positives: wheat, soy, peanut, egg. How to manage?

It sounds to me like someone who really doesn't understand food allergies put on a bunch of skin tests or, more likely, ordered a boatload of blood tests. See a board certified allergist to get a more accurate interpretation ...Read more
