Hi Aaron, welcome to Healingwell! There is a difference between food allergies and food intolerances. Food allergies present themselves in a more dramatic way such as rashes, hives, welts, throat/nose constriction, mucous production etc. While food intolerances usually involves the digestive tract like having diarrhea, bloating, constipation, headaches, mouth sores, watery/itchy eyes etc. If you feel that a food is causing you grief, then by all means try to eliminate them but do so only one at a time. That way you will know for sure if it's that particular food that is causing you grief. If you're not sure if its dairy or the chicken, try eliminating the chicken for a week or two and slowly introduce it back into your diet and see how you react. The same with dairy.
I have lactose intolerance and certain dairies cause me great harm. Luckily cheddar cheese isn't among them because I soooo love my cheddar cheeses!
Good luck and let us know the outcome.
