Hi I am new 23yrs old male and I hope you guys can help out somewhat or if anyone is in the situation I am in. So when I was a little kid i was diagnosed with allergies to corn,soybean, among numerous other food allergies and allergies such as pollen, dander, etc. Well despite being allergic to these food i still ate food with corn and soybean stuff in it without having a reaction for the most part. The only time i would have a reaction is when I would drink a sugary drink such as Hawaiian punch or something of that nature with high fructose corn syrup in it and even then my throat would just itch nothing else. Well just recently i seen my allergist and asked for another skin test because I noticed when I last ate some shellfish my thoat started to itch like crazy so I stopped eating shellfish and haven t ate any since then. I also noticed I developed a tree nut allergy because I ate some granola bars with nuts in it. Well the results of my skin test showed I was pretty much allergic too 95% of the food allergies on the list except meat, milk, and eggs. After that the doctor tells me too take a RAST test too to look at my results of that. After both test my allergist says I shouldn't eat shellfish(which i already knew), any type of nuts(new allergy for me), or corn(which i have been diagnosed with before), and soybean. My dilemma is this how is it that I have to stay away from corn and products with soybean when I know I have ate it without any kind of reaction at all except for the mentioned fruit punch type drinks??? This is stressing me out because im out shopping for food looking for stuff without these products and i see food i know i could eat but supposedly since the RAST and skin test say im allergic that i shouldn't eat it. Its confusing the hell outta me. Especially the day I had the test i ate honey nut cheerios with no reaction at all and chocolate covered peanuts. Among food with corn syrup and soybean in certain food.

A doctor would be easier to get a list from. Sounds like you should talk to your doctor and see if you should carry an epi pen. I carry one in my purse for my bad allergic reactions. YOu can always eat meat, milk, eggs.... Check Ramen out, pastas, etc... I'd be more than happy to try to find some recipes so you dnt hve to eat the same every day. Extra chinese food, throw some scrambled eggs with it..turn it to a omellette or quiche. Same with any left overs. Little things like that can take smething real borning that has already been what it has to something new. Just experiment a litle with spices and stuff Garlic is a good seasoning and pepper. every time you got the itching, how were you feeling? asking cuz I can eat tomattoe and cucombers if im well in moderation....if im sick, i break out in hives with them. They contain salicylites, im allregic to that but can have n moderation if im feeling well.
