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?

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
