I've eaten eggs all my life, maybe too often. At age 42, I suddenly developed an intolerance to them (I got a slight tingly feeling in my mouth when I ate French Toast). I had this reaction with 2 separate batches of eggs, so I don't believe it was an issue of freshness.

Eggs were a favorite part of my diet and a good source of protein for me since I am mostly vegetarian.

Can anyone offer any helpful input for me? I would like to be able to tolerate eggs again. Is there a therapy for this? I have not eaten them now for almost 4 years.

Thanks to anyone who might comment.

Are you sure it is eggs, and not wheat, milk, butter, a spice/herb, etc.?

Also, you may be ok with the yolk or the white part of the egg, or you might be ok if the egg is thoroughly cooked vs. less well cooked.

Consider looking into sublingual desensitization...it can help sometimes.  An Environmental Medicine specialist may know of how to do this...
