I'm allergic to pork and I was wondering if having that allergy would make me more likely to be allergic to beef I've been having similar reactions to beef that I've had from pork.If anyone has any idea please let me know thanks in advance

  • I get very red itchy palms after eating chicken. Recently I get it from beef and pork as well. I wonder if it is something they put in the meat or feed the animal.

For many years have been allergic to over 20some foods and dust and nylon. Wite down everything you eat for a few months and you will find out what else you are allergic to or not. About the pork, be very careful to read labels on candy, some contain gelatin from pork. Some jelly beans, orange slice candy, many other candies too. For a while I was thinking I was allergic to beef but it turns out, I'm not. I'm allergic to the french fries or baked potato I always fixed with it. So you may need to switch and rearrange some meal combinations whenever you suspect you found another allergy. Hope this helps.
