In brief: See an allergist

Any food allergy should be fully investigated by an allergist to determine if this is an ige or allergy antibody related problem. In general corn allergy is very uncommon, there is very little data on this topic.
One's local allergist can help to understand what symptoms are occurring and offer a treatment plan.

In brief: Chemical differences

While i'm not an expert on corn color, I do know that some people are allergic to yellow dye, like in certain medications.
I expect there is just enough difference in the chemical composition of the yellow and white corn that you are allergic to whatever makes the corn yellow.
