Food allergy

I ate some tiramisu this morning, and an hour later my face broke out and had bumps all over. My skin is itchy too. I have a slight allergy to eggs, but I can eat an egg without breaking out. I looked up tiramisu online but there are many kinds. Are there alot of eggs in this dessert? I think there was mascarpone cheese in it too, are there eggs in that?
What a day

Tiramisu does not contain eggs directly, but the savoiardi biscuits that make up a part of it probably do. Apart from the biscuits a tiramisu recipe shouldn't really use eggs, just cream/mascarpone/chocolate/coffee (and coffee liquer, optional).

Love the tiramisu!

It's one of my favorite desserts. I'm so sorry you had a bad reaction to it. Could it have been anything else?
