    Random Allergic Reactions
    Pebbles01 posted:
    I have read all the posts and I too have random allergic reactions to some food items when combined? Sometimes wine is the culprit. But just last night, had another attack for no known reason! It's the same reaction all to the right side of my face starting with my throat itching, right eye itching and swelling, gland in my neck swelling and nose closing up. I take 2 Benadryl and the symptoms stop getting worse. I'm afraid my reactions may get worse. But what I have been reading, the Allergists will take your money and may not give you any real answer as to why they occur. Does anyone have any other advice or ideas as to how to proceed? Thanks!
