In brief: Symptoms and test

Chicken meat allergy is either uncommon or under reported.
Intolerance symptoms are GI with nausea, abdominal pain, gassiness and diarrhea. A chicken skin test would be negative. True allergy (ige) symptoms are hives, wheezing, anaphylaxis and can include GI symptoms. A skin test would be negative. An allergist can assist in helping you determine if allergy or intolerance.
