The cause is often unknown but the condition is usually treatable. Up to 30% of CU is likely from an autoimmune process ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Eczema on face & stomach cramps come after eating kefir & ice cream. Cheese only cause constipation. Could I be allergic to dairy with diff symptoms?

Allergy RAST/blood (IgE) test reports no milk allergy. Is it possible I could still be allergic to dairy? Suffering from thick nasal mucus.
Yes: Either RAST (replaced by ImmunoCap IgE) and prick skin testing can miss some food allergies. I often test a patient to the food itself when the history and test findings do not match. Recently I was about to challenge a young boy to walnut (history positive, skin test negative) when the skin test turned out to be highly positive to the actual nut. Mold & mite allergies are more likely in HK. ...Read more
