A lot of people have a reaction to certain food types. For example, digestive problems such as abdominal pain and bloating or skin problems such as rashes and hives. There is a difference between intolerance and allergies but they are both unpleasant. It is best to jot down what you have eaten and so when you have a reaction you have a better chance of pinning down what it might be. If you have a strong reaction you should seek medical advice. At MUMS – our Private GPs consult with you and take a full history and examination and help you manage your allergies and intolerances by eliminating what it is your body does not like.
If you suffer from bloating or abdominal pain or diarrhoea following certain foods or you have skin sensitivities and develop itching or rashes or hives – although these can be caused by other factors such as stress and IBS – they could be due to some of the foods listed above that you should avoid.
