Does Eating Excessive Chicken Eggs Cause Allergies?
Hello, I want to ask if consuming excessive chicken eggs can cause allergies, so I often develop a rash and when it is scratched it spreads even more, is the cause mostly eating eggs.
Hello Akbar, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Allergy is an excessive reaction of the human immune system to exposure to certain substances or objects that do not cause reactions in other people's bodies. Symptoms that arise in allergic reactions can be various kinds such as itching, rashes, sneezing, shortness of breath, runny nose, swollen lips, etc. All substances can cause allergies, including important substances such as protein which are contained in many foods. Symptoms of protein allergy will appear suddenly after exposure. Protein allergy problems are egg allergy, seafood like fish and shrimp, and nut allergy.
In establishing the diagnosis of allergy is not that easy, the need to do a direct examination on the patient's skin, the rash that may appear is not a rash due to allergies, but is caused by several infections. If necessary, a check-up will be carried out in the form of skin allergy tests and blood tests to confirm the presence of allergies, but very rarely there is an allergy examination facility.
What you can do now is:
Avoid factors that trigger an allergy, to further evaluate whether the same response occurs when consuming the same thing.
Regular exercise can improve the human immune system.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle such as avoiding cigarettes and alcohol.
Get enough rest and don't sleep too late at night.
Consult your doctor if complaints are repeated, burdensome or annoying.
Here is an article about egg allergies that you can read and study.
That's all the answers I give, hope it helps.
Thank you, and always healthy :)
