Fever: Although don't know what you mean by low grade, fever is commonly a response to an inflammatory process which causes release of cytokines like tnf or il-2, etc. These stimulate the hypothalamus to reset the body's thermostat. Allergy can do this, but many things are possible. Doubt you have a "leaky gut". Good luck. ...Read more
My 3 year old had a food allergy for the first time. Doctor gave an oral steroid now he is soaked in sweat no fever is this normal?
Not usual but: Food allergy is not usually treated with steroid. However when the dose is high, it may cause flushing and thus the sweating without fever. Food reactions usually subside in less than a day at best and thus i question the use of steroid unless he had hives which could not be controlled with large dose of antihistamine. ...Read more

I would leave it alone. ...Read more

Can a food allergy cause mental slowness/confusion? I have new food allergies (IgE testing) and trying to make sense of it all. Thanks!
Not likely: Many people with no food allergy will produce antibody that reacts to the food allergy panel. Thus, these tests need to be interpreted by experts who treat food allergy daily. Skin testing is often more accurate, but ones history of symptoms that follow an ingestion is critical as well. Yes, dizziness/fogginess can occur with allergy, but is transient immediately following intake. Be well! ...Read more

Yes: Especially in children. Many food allergies can be outgrown with maturing immune and gastrointestinal systems.

Diarrheas may be due to digestive issues (e.g. Celiac sprue), intolerance, malabsorption (e.G lactose), infection (bacterial, viral, parasitic), inflammatory, irritable bowel. ...Read more
Foods not allergy: Foods that we eat can effect our breath and the way our body smells. Garlic, onions and curry spices all are absorbed and then secreted in sweat altering body fragrance.

Igg antibodies protect us from any potential harm. ...Read more
