Did you make the sushi? I wonder if you got CC'd from it. Perhaps not from the ingredients but from the making.

A lot of us also have other intolerances. I get hives also but I get them from soy, I get blisters from gluten. Have you greatly increased the amount of soy you are consuming? It took me a while to figure out the soy, which was confirmed by Enterolab last summer.

This seems to happen to me every few months too. One of the first times it was from licking envelops, another time from going into a friends restaurant kitchen while someone happened to be breading something. It's not always from some eaten with hidden gluten for me.

Also I gave up edamame as most come from China now -- even in high end Japanese places. It would not surprise me if they coat it with a wheat starch prior to packing, freezing and shipping from China.

i wouldnt think i was increasing the soy. no, i didnt make the sushi myself. i went to a very high-end fish restaurant.

so you think the soy made me break out in hives?

I have no idea if that was the case for you. Hives are a histamine reaction and they usually show up soon after consumption of the offending allergen. One way to find out if it is a problem is to eliminate it for a little while, at least till the hives clear up for a couple days and then add it back in and see if you break out again.

However before you ate the sushi did you ask them to use a clean surface, gloves and utensils ? Even a little gluten residue left on the prep surface could have resulted in cross contamination.

I've known some places to use soy sauce in certain types of sushi, so it's not impossible there was soy sauce in or on the prep area.

Also what brand of ice cream did you have? Some brands have an ingredient list a mile long and could include gluten, particularly barley.

Surimi, the imitation crab sticks or crab salad that is in most rolls can contain gluten. It is used as a binder along with the fish. Some of it is Gluten-free, you just have to ask them to read the label.

Also, at my local sushi restaurant, there is wheat in their soy sauce so I bring my own. They also use soy in their bbq eel sauce, terriyaki, ponzu and spicy sauces.

Just ask lots of questions and make sure they know to use a clean board, mat and knife.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
