Vegetable Oil Allergy

Amanda2606 posted:
I have noticed over the past year that whenever I cook with vegetable oil, especially when usin the deep fryer, I have some sort of reaction. After about 15 minutes of the fryer being on, my eyes start burning and watering. They swell up as well. My nose becomes stuffy and I feel congested. It's like I'm having some sort of allergic reaction to it. When I eat fried foods I'm fine though. Anyone heard of an allergy like this?
