Brief Answer:
Yes, possibility of food allergy is high.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of allergic skin reaction is more.
Allergy to food can cause this.
So you need antihistamine and anti allergic drugs for symptomatic relief.
Also avoid certain foods which is causing allergy in you.
Since all these drugs are prescribed medicines, you need doctor 's prescription for them.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health. Thanks
