Can allergies to mites and fungus show up as food allergies?

Thursday, December 06, 2012

I thought I was allergic to many foods, but a blood test showed only allergic to mites and fungus.

I wonder in the insect parts and fungus spores somehow get into the flour and other foodstuffs and I am reacting to that?

    Dust mites and fungus are everywhere. You have constant dermatitis contact with them.

    YES!!!! It depends on how allergic to fungus you are but remember, MUSHROOMS are fungus! There are also other things- I don't know what they are. But I do know that mushrooms could cause you issues and there are other things. I also know that leaf piles in the fall are also an issue for those with fungus issues. Mold may be associated? Cheese is in that category. You need to do some heavy research on it. Good luck!

    Dust mites are in the air we breathe, everywhere.. Our bodies shed them and dead skin cells by the thousands EVERY DAY.. If you ate nothing, you would still be subjected to them. I vacuum my mattress, wash all of my bed pillows, got rid of upholstered furniture, now have leather, tore up all carpeting except hallway and living room, no stuffed animals, spray my carpet and mattresses with dust mite spray. eliminated 99% of my allergy problems. DD's too.
