It is a common type of allergy, and is usually treated with an exclusion diet.

    I'm 18 and allergic to Gluten, Dairy, and Egg.A month ago today I developed hives all over my arms and legs and back. After steroids and several other medications they still haven't gone away. Hives aren't at all life threatening, but I've also lost my appetite and wake up in the night because my skin is on fire. I can't find any contamination, especially any that I would have been repeatedly...
