Suddenly allergic to coffee

Answered on August 19, 2014

Two weeks ago I started breaking out in hives after breakfast and lunch. Never had hives or any allergy before except for a mild cat allergy. I finally figured out this week that it was coffee, so it could just be caffeine in general but I don't know yet. I've been drinking coffee for many years.

So what gives? Anyone ever have something like this happen to them before?

There is also an almost immeasurable amount of coffee, virtually none for coffee that comes to first world stores: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7451391

There are several components of coffee that you may be allergic to. Caffeine is the most common. There are two very simple tests for caffeine allergies, I would suggest you speak with an allergist and get a test.

Caffeine allergies are interesting in that caffeine is a stimulant and stimulants can mask the effect of the allergy. So caffeine allergies generally show up over time -- which is why it makes sense that you are suddenly getting the symptoms.

Do you put anything in your coffee? Most coffee creamers, both dairy and non dairy, have a ton of unnecessary ingredients and hidden allergens. Coffee allergy is pretty rare so I was thinking it could be something else like that.
