Reaction to Wheat Dust. What Does That Mean?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My sister and I just transferred a bunch of red wheat berries from 25lb bags to mylar bags. I started sneezing my head off right away. Eyes itching, throat sore and scratchy, and a bit of difficulty breathing. I've searched around on the internet and read a bit about something called Bakers Allergy, but I don't know if that just means I shouldn't breath the wheat dust, or if I should not consume wheat, as well. I have some environmental allergies, but have never been diagnosed with food allergies before.

 

Any insight or input would be really helpful!

That would make me wonder about a wheat allergy.  The easiest thing to do would be to eliminate gluten for a week or two and see what happens.  You might find that your environmental allergies clear up.  Do you have them year round?
