Itchy skin over entire body without rash

Whenever I eat flesh foods, my skin itches all over, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. The worst effects are from flesh that turns white when cooked. Chicken has the worst effect, then pork, then beef; fish produces the mildest itch. There is never any visible sign of the itching, but it can be quite severe if I eat much flesh. What could be the trigger for this symptom?

welcome to helathcare magic forum

you seem to be allergic to high protein food stuff , and you have just started with mild symptoms of urticaria, which if not controlled now can become worsen , better start up with homoeopathic medicines , which will treate the cause rather treating the disease.
consult a homoepath .

takecare,wish you good health always!!!

May I ask you if you notice such symptoms with other food stuff too?? Do you have 100% symptom free period if you do not consume these food stuff? And do you notice these symptoms everytime you consume fleshy food?
If the answer is yes, then I suggest you take the food challenge test. Consult a dermatologist near you or visit AIIMS for expert advice.

The effect began about 20 or so years ago with fish and chicken, then it expanded to encompass pork chops (but not ham)—any flesh that turns white when cooked—then later even to beef. The effect is mildest with beef, medial with pork chops, and worst with chicken. Strangely, it no longer happens with fish. There is absolutely no visible sign, just a tingly itch over my whole skin, even my eyes itch. The symptom subsides after a few hours, depending on how much flesh I consumed, and there is apparently no lasting effect from it. I'd just like to know what could be the cause of this odd reaction to eating flesh.
