Re: Hives for about 7 weeks
My hives started after I took the sulfa. I was told I was allergic to sulfa, stopped taking it, but the hives continued.
Found out that sulfa can mix with foods, particularly eggs/dairy, and cause a reaction. I had some type of egg product every day without thinking about it, espcially mayo! I think my body didn't have time to heal after stopping the sulfa; like the sulfa attached to egg? Make any sense. I stopped ALL egg products and after a few days, much better. Years later I acidentally ate something and found out afterwards that it contained an egg product, but nothing happened. I eat anything now with no problems what so ever. Lucky me. I would try to gradually introduce food again, and when you find something triggers the hives, bingo! Elimate that for awhile.
