Is there a permanent cure for yeast allergy?

Is there a permanent cure for yeast allergy?

Not specifically.: Sometimes it is a cross-reactivity to allergy to another mold that may improve with immunotherapy. This would not be the typical case and you should not expect improvement. However, you may eat any product that does not use yeast in the making of it. That would include such breads as tortilla, pita, flatbread, biscuits, cornbread. ...Read more

If I have a brewers yeast allergy can I eat manna?

If I have a brewers yeast allergy can I eat manna?

Probably not: Manna would last only one day; by the next morning, "it became infested with maggots and stank." (exodus 16:20) ... Maybe moses changed his mind about keeping it around. Thus, i doubt you can still find it. (taken with additions from http://www.Straightdope.Com/columns/read/1402/followup-wasnt-manna-placed-in-the-ark-of-the-covenant). ...Read more

If I have a yeast allergy, would taking red yeast pills be bad?

If I have a yeast allergy, would taking red yeast pills be bad?

Not necessarily: The species of yeast causing common yeast allergy is very different from the red yeast species. They are in different genera. That said, characterization of yeast species is fluid because the yeast phase of the mold is very different from the mycelial stage - two phases of the fungal life cycle. Best advice is to discuss this question with the allergist who tested you for yeast allergy. ...Read more

Does a +2 on a skin allergy test mean that you should not eat anything with that item in it? The foods are milk, yeast, potato and rice

Does a +2 on a skin allergy test mean that you should not eat anything with that item in it?  The foods are milk, yeast, potato and rice

Whoa: If someone has told you to shun everything to which you have supposed skin sensitivity, please get a second opinion. I'm not an allergist, but food allergies are best determined by your clinical response to a particular food. Skin tests are adjuncts at best & often misleading. Nowadays, people are disrupting their lives and those of others by overly-restrictive diets from weak evidence like this. ...Read more
