After an allergy test I was told I was allergic to eggs, but I really dont have a reaction to them at all when I eat them. Walnuts bother me, I get an itchy mouth and canker sores from them. Those are the only food allergies I know of, but am allergic to pollen, grass, mold spores, and cats.

We both can eat every kind of shellfish except the one item we each are allergic to.

does aloe count? I've never eaten it, but I've heard you can....

It makes me break out in lotion/oil/moisturizer/sunscreen form. Weird, right?

But other than that, I've been lucky so far! I wish I was allergic to peas.

Eggs make me feel sick if I eat them by themself like scrambled eggs or boiled eggs or whatever but if they are baked in to something or like a custard or whatever I feel fine.

I'm not allergic to any foods, but I am allergice to, don't laugh, cold temperatures. So sometimes when I eat something really cold, like ice cream, my lips, tongue and mouth will swell. Anything that touches something cold, swells. Not such a good thing living in the Chicago area!

Well, seriously, and luckily, I don't have any food allergies that I know. Except that one time I ate grouper a while ago, it got me a bit sicky that was the only time any food bothered me directly.
I feel so fortunate, I don't think I can live my life without dairy or wheat, and would be so sad if I couldn't eat my favourite fresh fruits (poor Jkath!!) like strawberries or other berries and melons!!

Tomatoes here, and msg, citrus, high acid foods, high fat foods, sulpher (dried fruits), milk when drunk alone, as well as pollen and grass allergies and propylene glycol in skin care and makeup. Geez, I'm a bit of a culinary drag! I have no problem with sugar, unfortunately...

I had a blood test that uncovered an allergy to milk. I was curious about this as I had always had milk and didn't think it was a problem. I got sent to an allergist for other reasons (namely to see if I could get a cat - as a pet not to eat!!!) and he looked into the milk allergy further.

I'm allergic to goat's milk, apparently, how weird is that?

I have never tried it, and if I have goats cheese I get an itchy throat (I don't like goats cheese much anyway)

I'm certainly allergic to sulphur (metabisulphates) and am so pleased that more stores are stocking sulphur free dried fruits. I have to be really careful with wines, a lot of them are full of the metabisulphates.
