For the past couple of months i have had some serious digestive issues (Mainly nausea, loose bowel motions, flatulence and bloating). My GI thinks my symptoms are too serious for ibs. I have had every test knowen done and everything has come back clear.

I have noticed that whenever I eat corn or peas i get diarrhea and sorry for tmi..but the peas and corn are never digested. So in my diarrhea is corn or peas? Could this be an allergy? Or intolerance or?

Also a few weeks back i was peeling the leaf bits of the corn cobs and i noticed about 3 mins later i developed a rash on my forearms. I took an antihistamine and put cream on my arms and it went away.

Also 2 or 3 times in the last month I would randomly get a rash that looked like goosebumps on my thies, arms and chest?

What do ya'll think? Any reply will be helpful to me.

If you are having digestive problems you need to repair your gut. This is done by eating foods which contain probiotics. Things like homemade sauerkraut, kombucha tea, a good quality yogard. Stop eating the process foods and get on a healthy diet. These are fruits and vegetables that have not been processed. Stay away from the GMO foods. Once you repair you gut the allergies may go away.

Since the symptoms go away with antihistamine, I'd suspect a simple allergy.

Have you had a skin prick test? A GI might not do that, but an allergist certainly will! It's possible to not react to the test!

Keep a food journal in case you react to other foods or things with which you come in contact. Since the corn cob leaves triggered a reaction, pay particular attention to corn-related things.
