I'm allergic to corn! I have been to doctors and specialists to treat this rash all over my face that spreads to my neck. After no relief (and worse symptoms from the cures), I started trying foods. I thought it was red or brown coloring, but it turned out to be corn. I have demonstrated this again and again, but corn did not show up on my allergy test results. Why?
As the Food Detective noted: it's in everything. I obviously avoid anything with the word "corn," but what ingredients are corn in disguise?
I take Allegra D twice daily along with nasal sprays and eye drops for my seasonal allergies. I can't take Zyrtec (knocks me out) Are there any drugs that can help people like me?
Most importantly, are there any treatments to desensitize my reaction? I am taking allergy shots for seasonal and environmental allergies, but there was no mention of my food allergies being addressed. My doctor is a little old-school.
THANK YOU! I'm so tired of being sent home with a shoulder shrug.
