Possibly: If the bodily reaction is occurring consistently with only certain foods. The saturation and the blood pressure readings you have are normal. If it is happening with any eating or swallowing then need to think about some sort of gastrointestinal disorder. Further consultation with your GP may help here ...Read more

Hives from head to toe an hour after eating shellfish for the first time. No swelling or breathing difficulty but extremely itchy and uncomfortable...

Likely allergic!: I highly recommend taking Benadry, two tablets, to help reduce the itching and discomfort. If you develop any facial/mouth swelling or difficulty breathing, then you have to call 911 for help. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) takes roughly 30 minutes to work. Then you need to see an allergist for testing to determine your specific food allergies. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My groin (pubic area) was itchy so I applied a anti-fungal cream (1% clotrimazole) but it irritated and burn my skin. How do I stop the burn/tingling?

See answer: It appears that you are either sensitive or allergic to some ingredient in the Clotrimazole cream causing a "contact dermatitis". Would recommend washing thoroughly with mild, neutral ph soap and apply an over the counter 1 or 2% Hydrocortisone cream or ointment 2-3x a day. Can take up to a couple of weeks to resolve depending on severity. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Itchy flaky scalp and excessive hair loss after eating foods except (whole wheat) and the food allergies test (prick & rast) was negative. Why?

Itchy flaky scalp and excessive hair loss after eating foods except (whole wheat) and the food allergies test (prick & rast) was negative. Why?

Alopecia and allergy: It is unlikely that food allergy has anything to do with hair loss. Plus both prick and blood test for food are negative so you are unlikely to have ige mediated food allergy. Many things may cause hair loss including androgenic (male pattern) baldness, fungal infection, autoimmune disease like lupus, thyroid/pituitary dysfunction, iron-deficiency anemia... You should talk to your doctor again. ...Read more

I get sweet itchiness once/twice in a day. My eyes in general are watery. Little wind, warm/mild spicy food makes eyes watery and nose starts running.

I get sweet itchiness once/twice in a day. My eyes in general are watery. Little wind, warm/mild spicy food makes eyes watery and nose starts running.

Dry eye and more: This may represent a combination of conditions such as dry eye, blepharitis / rosacea, and allergic conjunctivitis. Tearing in response to air movement usually indicates reflex tearing. That is, the eye is on the borderline of being dry, and the wind will put it over the edge and the eye tears in response. Itching is more consistent with allergy, and spicy food with blepharitis / rosacea. ...Read more

Skin coloured bumps (rarely itchy) over area near elbow, knee and wrist. Disappears and reappear after 1-2 hours. Worsen after having food?

Uncertain: How long after eating would you note this reaction since food allergic reaction usually occurs within 2 hours after eating and usually associated with itching. I suspect also that you may have a dry skin issue and suggest that you apply a moisturizer on your skin <3 minutes after bathing and see if this helps. Does exercise or after a hot shower induce the same reaction? Let's hear from others. ...Read more
