Why After Two Days Of Eating Chicken Skin Itching All Over The Body?
Hello, I want to ask, 2 days I ate chicken skin. After a few hours I consumed the chicken skin, I experienced itching all over my body. But I have never experienced that before after eating chicken skin. What do you think about that? Thank you
Hello Lilis, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Allergies to certain foods can sometimes appear after a person is mature. Even though you have never experienced an allergic reaction to certain foods, at one time you might have an allergic reaction to those foods. Even so, itching all over your body can also be caused by other things (besides allergic to chicken skin). The following are some of the possible causes of itching all over your body:
You experience food poisoning (for example the quality of the chicken skin you eat is not too good). Sometimes the symptoms of food poisoning can resemble allergic symptoms The chicken skin you eat is exposed to other ingredients that make you allergic (for example chicken skin is processed together with shrimp or fried flour used to contain certain nuts) Chicken skin is given certain preservatives and you are allergic to preservatives given itching on the skin caused by other skin pathologies, for example you have dry skin, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, exposed to insect bites or other small animals, etc. If indeed you experience itching all over the body, you should consult your doctor so that further evaluation and treatment can be done. If indeed itching leads to allergies, your doctor can give anti-allergic medicines to help reduce the symptoms you feel. You can also reduce skin itching by applying lotion containing calamine or bathing in cool water. Try to identify the cause of your allergy and avoid consuming these foods again so that the allergy does not recur.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
