Can I get rid off of this allergy in my life. I have it from my childhood. My doctor said it will vanish with my age, but still i suffer. I like eating food in hotels but the only problem is that i am allergic to egg. Please do tell me the measures.

When you introduce them too, try just eating the yolks and make sure it's on a day off (just in case you swell up or break out in a rash).

I think avoiding known allergens isn't "running away from the problem", it's just a great known way to not be loaded up with histamine, and possibly bloated/rashing/swelling/anaphylaxis. Get an allergy test every year to see if it changes, safe and pretty easy way to monitor it if you have an allergist in your area.

^ Sure, but using brute force to cure allergies is probably counter-productive.

No it isn't. I think some people start to see elimination as 'running away from your problems', and I couldn't agree more. I solved quite some of my food intolerances.

It is bizarre that this has to be said.

What Kasra said: don't eat eggs. Yes, it's a pain, but if you're allergic, you're allergic.

If you think that, in time, the allergy might go away, then try eating them again in six months or a year and see what happens. But continuing to eat eggs while you are still allergic to them isn't going to make the allergy go away.

I have the same allergy and I have completely eliminated them from my diet. I can tell if I eat something that was cooked with even one egg in it because I bloat so bad. I have added more bacon and turkey sausage in my diet instead and the hardest thing to resist is a good omelet. I will test my allergy out every 6 months, but it is not worth the feeling I get with eggs.

There are different types of allergic responses. Obviously, if you have an anaphalactic reaction to eggs then don't eat them. Some people are just allergic to the whites so maybe the yolks are ok for you. If your reaction is mainly digestive in nature perhaps you can eventually overcome your reaction and eat them again. Not sure if you can get allergy shots for eggs like some people do for say, cat dander. You might want to check into that.

As has been said, if you are allergic to eggs DO NOT EAT THEM! You can trying eating just the yolk as some have problems with the eggwhites rather than the whole egg.

I would suggest complete elimination then trying them in 6 months or so to see if your body healed.

I had a similar problem with eggs to the point of feeling like I am going to throw up after eating a three egg omelet. If it makes you feel bad, don't eat it.

For me it was also based on the quantity of eggs I eat. Baked products with a very small amount of egg whites don't give me problems.

I like NAET treatment for allergies. www.naet.com

I still count myself as allergic to milk; but I don't have any severe reaction if I accidentally (or on purpose) get some.
