Blood test for common food allergies negative does this mean there wont be any reactions to food or anaphylaxis?!

The skin on my face burns and itches as well as my throat. Doc did blood test for common food allergy-negative! Wont eat! Scared of anaphylaxis now!

However throat itching (provided no throat closure) can be present if someone has eaten a food and particularly certain fruits. The latter is due to cross-sensitivity to a pollen (birch, ragweed). You need to consult a b/c allergist to pin this down. I usually test with the actual fruits instead of extracts. Read more...
