Anyone else working around a birch allergy?
I was diagnosed with a birch allergy a few years back...which also included banana and apple. I have a feeling I have to throw avocado in there as well. Wiki shows a ton of foods that I might react to---and this might explain my itchy leg issues---I'm hoping! Might try to avoid raw veggies and nuts for awhile to look for improvements!
I'm allergic to pretty much all raw fruits (except citrus and watermelon), berries, nuts and a bunch of vegetables because of my birch allergy. Because I can eat most of them if they're heated/cooked I usually just cook everything so I don't need to remember what I can/can't eat raw or get a reaction to something I didn't know I was allergic to.
Before primal I had really dry and itchy skin on my legs, but that disappeared when I stopped eating candy. Every now and then I'll have some candy at a birthday party or something and I always wake up with dry and itching skin the next day.
I totally have had intense bouts of leg itchyness for the past 4+ years. Sometimes it has gotten so bad that I scratch until I bleed. I've scarred them too. I havent, in all these years, kept any kind of food journal to track intake and symptoms. I do tend to eat a lot of nuts over the course of a week... I did read that cooking can help with these foods! I want to cut all of them out and try to reintroduce and keep tally on my legs too! Thanks for your input!
