Delayed Food Hives/reactions

Recommended Posts

if you eat something you are allergic to (i.e. gluten, egg, piece of fruit) how long until a hive is produced? i have been 'testing the waters' so to speak with eggs and fruit and initially i do not have hives but a day or so later i do. just wondering what your thoughts were!! help!!


- gluten free since August 2007

- endoscopy came back negative for celiac in December 2007

- bloodwork confirms egg allergy

- allergy testing confirms only banana, apple, melon, egg and environmental allergies

i get hives anywhere on my waist down and less bloating/constipation when i do not eat wheat.

I get sores from dairy, usually on my face or back. Usually it's cumulative over time or depending on what form and how much. For example, if I have a certain quantity of cream or milk I'll get a sore the next day but if I have only cheese but often in a week and including softer cheeses like mozzarella and softer cheddar, jack etc., not just parmesan, then I may break out at the end of the week.

Usually I break out within 10 minutes of having some sort of hidden gluten.

There are times when it's been a day or two and not sure why there is a difference other than the type of accident.

good luck

I'm wondering maybe the jelly beans. I know if I eat too many candies with citric acid, I will get blisters in my throat. I know they can be so frustrating, but a sign of some kind of allergy. I hope that you figure it out. Wendy

Hello,

I had an unexplained all over, very itchy rash 6 days after a day of vomiting - could this be allergy related? Are the two events likely to be related? I don't know what hives are - are they itchy and does it matter where they are? I was on holiday at my moms and she was having major work done in the kitchen so it was difficult to cook and make sure stuff wasn't contaminated. The family seemed to think it was a nervous rash, but that has never happened to me before.

Thank you for any help!

hi. i was going through alot of what you are currently going through. finally, my brain made a connection. i would eat gluten-free stuff that my celiac friends had no problem with, but it caused a gluten like reaction for me. started me thinking perhaps i had other food allergies.

so, i went on a food elimination diet. no dairy, gluten (obviously!), eggs, fruit that you eat more than once a week, chocolate, sugar. eat only food that is in it's natural state, no preservatives. for me, at 3 days on this diet, i was completely cured of my rashes, itching, horribly painful stomach, running nose and watery/itchy eyes.

i'm adding in food slowly (pretty much screwed up the first weeks, but now i'm doing it right). so far, bad reaction to eggs. dairy is fine (thank goodness). chocolate is a problem (ate chocolate without soy lecithan - lindt 70% cocoa is one that you can usually find pretty easy). going to try apples next, i think.

it is a slow process, but well worth it.

Thanks for replying. The idea of going on an even stricter diet is very depressing and I don't think I can cope at the moment. The rash only happened at my mom's house so I'm hoping that it won't happen again here. Since reading this thread I found another about paint and realised that my step father had been painting the kitchen over the weekend and that I came out in the all over rash the next day - could breathing paint do it? The smell was pretty foul.

you could certainly be reacting to something in the paint fumes, a chemical reaction. this makes even more sense if you have problems walking down the cleaning products aisle at store...makes you feel ill because of the smells.
