Well, I never in my life had hives until just a couple of weeks ago. My face became swollen, especially
my eyes. Had red splotches from head to foot. Came back again the next two days. Saw and allergist,
he thought I might have developed an allergy to Yellow Dye #5, although he wasn't positive. He put me
on Allegra and a special dye/preservative free diet for 2 weeks until I see him again. I was on the Allegra
for the first week, and now just the diet. It's been two days since I stopped the Allegra and no hives as
of yet. I trying to eat everything fresh, but it's hard between a full time job and school. Anyone have any
dye/preservative free receipes I can use??? And if anyone has had any similiar symptoms, I'd appreciate
your advice!!!

Thanks!
Diana
