Fatty foods make my throat itch--?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've found that certain fatty foods make my throat itch and burn.  It's becoming more common, which I find weird, and I was wondering if any of you ladies/men had some insight for me.

 

It started with coconut oil.  Now I have problems with nut butters, coconut butter, some coconut milks, cheddar cheese, and cream cheese.  It's usually when I eat those foods straight or in high concentration to other ingredients.  I can usually eat these foods cooked into other things without any problems, except for coconut products.

 

I can eat other fatty food with no problems.  Butter is fine, even straight, lard, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, those are all fine for me.

 

Has anyone else had this happen?

That's interesting. I've noticed the same thing with coconut oil. I've been eating quite a bit of it, straight, lately, and sometimes it will itch/tickle my throat enough that I have to reach for a glass of water.

I think I might actually be sensitive to coconut oil, since if I put it on my skin (especially my face) it will make it red and scaly.  But all the other foods bothering me is something new.  I have to confess I haven't done a skin test on the new foods.
