I went to the allergist on Mon. 11/27, & my skin test was negative. I just got the RAST test results today & it was negative also.

I did a dumb thing & Wed I ate a tsp. of peanutbutter & about 6 hrs. later I started getting sores on the corners of my mouth. (same reaction I've had before to PB) Also, I ate a Boca veggie burger tues. & I had insane itching on my nose & face, which lasted abouy 4 hrs.

I feel like I'm having allergic reactions to foods(PN & TN) but I feel like I might be crazy. I know I've had a swollen eye for 1 week after eating 4 pecans.

I would just like to here from someone who has experienced this or from someone who knows of anyone else with a similar experience.

Thanks for any input.

If this is a bouble post, sorry, I don't think the other one went through.

KIMMO, be careful doing any 'at home food challenges' until you know absolutely that you aren't allergic.
My allergist acted like I was really going overboard by avoiding 'may contains' - so I did a similar thing at home, and ate 1/2 peanut, which made me deathly ill. I proved the allergist wrong but I also did a really stupid thing.
I believe there are one or two other members here that test negative yet still have a reaction that can offer some inpiut. Perhaps you could ask to do a food challenge in your doctor's office where you are monitored?
