Sometimes allergic to beer?
For some reason I am sometimes allergic to beer. On a few occasions out with my friends I have broken out into hives while combining drinking beer and eating. The food has been either burgers or pizza. Maybe it is a combo of the beer and bread at the same time? I drink beer all the time, so it isn't the beer alone. I also eat those foods fine without beer.
Between these events I have had attended bbq's and ha burgers and beer to no reaction.
It is definitely not one specific beer, because I Have tried the same beers without having reactions
Is it possible to be allergic to a combination? I went to the allergist after one of the bad reactions, and none of the tests showed anything. Any ideas? I break out into hives, and one time my blood pressure dropped and I lost vision and almost passed out. I have never had a problem breathing. I usually take a antihistamine and then the hives go away after a while.
It is very frustrating not knowing the exact cause, and what to avoid.
Would taking a clariten before I drink and eat prevent this?
