Itchy throat when eating nuts

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy throat when eating nuts


I'm a 29 y.o female who has had hives 9 months. When I first saw my doctor he gave me a course of steroids, that didn't help at all. I have tried all sorts of antihistamines... Zyrtec, Claritin and now i'm trying Chlor-Trimeton. All of them not helping much anymore. I have read article after article about hives and the more I read the more down I feel about it.. not being able to find a cause. I have had an allergy test and I have high allergy to dust mites.
So for the last 10-15 years I have noticed that whenever I eat most fruits, veggies, and nuts before cooking my mouth, gums, lips and throat get very itchy and swell up. The itchiness is the worst part as it can feel unbearable if I eat more then a tiny bit of the offending food. I have not however tested how far I could actually go or tested how bad the symptoms get as I usually only eat very little of the offending food and if the itching starts I stop right away.
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
I recently have started feeling sick when I am eating and for a while after I am eating.
i have a cold at the moment and when i cough i get an itchy back just at the bottom of my ribs. it drives me nuts cos i just wont stop! im also wondering what this may be a sign of??
Off and on for years I have been getting an itchy throat and cough after eating candy and gum. Does anyone have any ideas on what this all could be?
then when I tell the respitory therapist at the hospital that my lungs were itchy...she thought I was nuts. Of course telling me she had never heard of that before. Then yesterday at work...I couldn't tolerate the feeling anymore. It feels like I'd like to remove my lungs from my chest and use my nails to scratch them...I know it's my lungs because after having the lung surgery I can feel my left lung at all times. It's a very strange sensation.
The itch can drive you insane. Last night I was going nuts with intense itchy feeling. Sure enough, when you try to relieve the itch you cause it to get all stirred up again and runny. All I want for xmas is Two new ears, Two New Ears.......
My husband had a problem that came on all of a sudden when he was in his 30's. Turned out he had had strep throat which caused his itching. They put him on antibiotic and he got better. Ask your doctor to check for that.
Change from Hot to cold- Some of you said you get itchy when your not working out but are in hot weather or when you are working out and in cold weather or when you are rested and your body temperature is less than your surrounding. You need to realize it's the CHANGE in temperature. So if you workout in a cold gym, you're making yourself hot. I bet if you step outside in the warmth there is a chance it will subside and vice-versa.
I had no choice but to take off when I needed to. I took a Benadryl last night and am now in Zombieland. Still itchy. (highly allergic to Atarax, so that's not an option) Need to go to a Dermatologist for something else, so I might just need to go sooner than later. I hate being itchy and scratching like I have fleas. I will do more Biotene too for the metal mouth. Thanks for all the advice and tips. I will be trying some of them and hope it helps.
I have tiny itchy bumps on the left side of my lips - almost on the corner, but not quite - and near the edges. This started about 2 days ago. I am living overseas where I don't speak the language & it's hard to tell if the doctors understand (just on previous visits when I had a cold). The day that this occurred I tried a sample of a local homemade regional dish and was offered to take some home and ate some that night. The girl who offered me rinsed her fork but didn't wash it.
Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right? When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
The hives finally stopped for a 24 hour period, to be replaced with severely itchy feet, ankles and hands (but no hives). Is it possible I am still reacting from the bee sting or is this only coincidental? Is the itchy feet and hands related to the cause of hives? Thanks!!!!
I did an elimination diet to figure out what works for me. I stopped eating processed food completely. I eat just veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds, fish and chicken. I never eat Dairy or things that contain Gluten. I know it sounds tough, and it will be at first but it is worth it to feel good again. I hope this helps someone get better sooner than I did. I know what you are going through!! Hang in there!!
I do get an itchy throat if i eat the skin of apples, pears, or plumbs. I should probably be going to the Doctors as much as possible. But i cannot take off any more time from work. And finding Doctors that are available when i am has proven difficult. So now I ask on this Forum for some help, advice, opinion, anything. I am open to any question what-so-ever about my personal health history, drug usage, job etc. what ever it takes to help get an answer I thank everyone in advance.
Hi there I also have a one sided problem with mucas in throat. When I wake up in the morning there is loads of it in the back of my mouth, and depending on which position i sleep in, sometimes it is in my lung as well. My right side is unaffected completely, but my left side is never free from it. It started in june 2004, and it also affects my left tonsil. They are swollen and have those nasty smelling white/cream lumps on them.

Mine may be a bit milder. I have redish flat disks that have formed on my elbows (slightly itchy, mild pain when bumped) and slightly red, mostly skin colored small bumps on the knuckles and top side of my fingers and hands. This condition usually only last 1-3 weeks for me and very rarely. I've had this happen maybe 3-4 times in my life. I thought that it may perhaps be Dermatitis Herpetiformis and mentioned that when i saw my dermatologist today.
I do shave and this is the worst! I found that when the hairs start to grow back, the wiskers will drive you nuts. So now we have the itching, irritation from scratching and cuts, the regrowing of hairs and swelling from the rubbing and a husband who can't get his way. HHHEEELLLPP!
At work, somebody had brought a mixed bag of nuts, and thinking that my tree nut allergy days were over, I grabbed a handful of nuts and began eating them, when I started feeling allergy symptoms again. I checked what kind of nuts were in there, and the only ones that I hadn't tested before were Brazil nuts. I tried several times eating them by themself, but always got an allergic reaction, but still no allergic reaction to almonds, walnuts or cashews.
For I too have had this horrible itchy cough accompanied (sometimes) by an inflamed throat that comes and goes. The itchy coughing is especially present at night or when it's getting be evening around 5 pm. The docs keep prescribing medication that won't really help. But I hope someone figures out what the hell is going on becuase I'm heading into my second month of misery. To top it off, I've caught a second cold and have a recurrence of my second cold sore this year. It's big and ugly.
my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
For the past four years, I've experienced a strange rubbing sound/sensation in my lower throat/upper chest area. It occurs only whenever I twist my torso from side to side, such as when exercising, or quickly turning to the side via pivoting at the waist. It feels & sounds like something is causing friction. I cannot pinpoint where it is coming from, but it seems to be my lower throat/upper chest, somewhere around collarbone level. It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus.
a few days later when i wasn't having as many i realised that he was right. i know its difficult not to worry when its happening to you, i'm the biggest worrier ever, but if your heart echo and other tests say you're fine then YOU'RE FINE! are you on any meds for the pvcs? i am not and i think that is part of the problem i am looking to start a beta blocker soon and hopefully that will help.
Some folks wonder why they try and try to loose weight but nothing seems to work, well, sometimes it is what they are eating and when they stop eating that particular food, they loose weight. Another note, some folks actually "crave" the very foods they are allergic to, it is strange, but, it almost like your body is "addicted" to that food. No one really know why however.
In the past I've had nothing more than itchy lips and throat. Today, however, my symptoms were vastly different. With in 30 minutes of ingesting 2 spoonfuls of the ice cream I experienced the following: *itchy face, eyes, throat, neck and ears *itchy, swollen lips *oral ulcerations *itchy, swollen and later numb tongue *numb hard and soft pallet *nausea *headache *tightness in chest I know that each allergy has it's different ratings. Based on what I've shared ... how severe is this?
I've been having panic attacks lately whenever i eat food, especially when i go out to eat or order in. I'll be eating my food and then during it or after I start to panic. I get these sensations in my throat. Sometimes it feels like its swelling, tightening, itchy or dry. Some spices that I have noticed that are on the foods that I eat cause my throat to get itchy as well, but I am not really allergic to foods.
Some I seem to tolerate only cooked. I seem to tolerate a small amount of nuts, then I have to take a break from eating nuts. I can't eat peanuts. I can't even stand the smell of peanuts. I'm not as bad off as the little kids who can't so much as breathe peanut dust, who can have anaphylaxic shock from minute exposures, but I do feel unwell just from the smell of peanuts. Foods like potatoes that have to be cooked anyway irritate my throat, even if they're the best organic ones around.
