In brief: Additional allergies

The itching suggests that there might be a complicating component.
I would advise that they check a serum tryptase and a serum alpha-galactose level. This may help sort if you are having a systemic reaction from mast cell release or a rare meat allergy that reacts 6-10 hours after eating meat.

In brief: Interesting

Sounds like eosinophilic pneumonia or pulmonary eosinophilia! has he tried corticosteroids by mouth? Like prednisone? Im interested to see what the pulmonologist think! the biopsy of asthma is an associative finding!
