Q
Alergie

Môre Ek het gisteraand twee gekookte eiers geeet en seker omtrent 20min na ek dit geeet het het my keel begin jeuk en my lyf- my tong het opgeswel maar nie baie nie. Gelukkig het ek Celestimine gehad in die huis. Ek het ook vanoggend beskuit gegeet en my keel het weer begin jeuk maar nie so baie soos gisteraand nie. Kan dit wees dat ek dalk 'n alergie vir eier ontwikkel?

It is unlikely to develop an egg allergy as an adult. This is a common early childhood allergy. It may be that you have a low grade throat infection and hence the itching of your throat. If is doubt, your GP can perform a RAST test for egg allergy.
