Tickling in roof of mouth, inner ear itching, anal itching. Allergy to wheat?

Hello, I am constantly itchy. I have a tickle on the roof of my mouth, my inner ear itches and my anal area can be downright unbearable! I occasionally have itchy skin, watery/itchy eyes and a cough that doesn t seem to go away. My biggest annoyance is the anal itching. Bit isn t everyday at every moment, but when it occurs it is rough! I always had it to a degree, but it increased when I got pregnant. It tends to be more prominent at night and near my period. I have told my doctor about and have been checked for parasites just in case. I think I must be allergic to something. Could it be wheat?

Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
If 3 stool samples for parasites have been negative, it is then quite unlikely. There are other surrogate markers on blood tests to check for allergies like eosinophilia on blood count or IgE levels (raised).
Allergies to house dust mite, animal dander (if you have pets), grass pollens, weed pollens (in asthmatics) must be definitely checked either in the form of skin prick testing or blood test (specific IgE test). A specific IgE to wheat can also be checked although very unlkely.
Do you get these symptoms after eating wheat products everytime? If no, then allergy to wheat is very unlikely.
Eczema and dry skin can make the skin itchy so keep it well hydrated and use moisturisers.
Long acting antihistamines will help and avoidance measures once the allergies are identified.
I hope that was useful.
