For people that develop hives or rashes, it may be from eating a certain type of food or oil, or it could be from some environmental change such as pollen, air pollution location change, career change, stress and more. If you try to change your diet and the problem still remains or gets worse contacting a doctor or specialist may be needed.
Some foods that may trigger hives in some people include: eggs, milk, nuts, fish, berries, chocolate, tomatoes, coffee, alcohol and tobacco, food additives and more. Other elements such as prescription medications, infections, overexposure to sunlight and many other factors can also contribute to allergic reactions such as hives.
Foods that may help relief hives may include: anything with a high source of vitamin C such as fruit juices, strawberries, leafy greens and more. Vitamin C helps to boost the immune system and also releases antihistamines which help to relief the symptoms of hives. Vitamin B 12 has also been known to help reduce the symptoms of hives. Foods containing vitamin B12 may include: eggs, meat, poultry, soy products, salmon and low fat milk. If you have any food allergy is important to record what foods you eat and when and what happened to you when you ate certain foods. It may be as simple as eliminating a food or food source from your diet or adding another food to help with the allergy. That way if needed, a doctor can better help treat the allergy and get you feeling better in no time at all.
This is why it is important to know about allergies and good nutrition; so that we can all stay healthy for as long as possible.
